So I am pretty sure that winter has set in and isn’t going anywhere for a while. We have had snow on the ground almost every day since the middle of November and brrr is it already so cold out! Some days are just too cold to head outside and we need some fun winter activities to keep us from getting the winter blues. My four year old is able to recognize her numbers, but something we haven’t spent as much time on is number words. I created these penguin number word tracing cards to have on hand this winter to practice recognizing, tracing, and spelling the number words zero through twenty.
*Pair this with our Snow Centers & Activities for Pre-K/Kindergarten
Penguin Tracing Number Words
These penguin number tracing cards can be used in a variety of ways in both a homeschool and traditional classroom setting. Use these as a morning work activity or add them to your math center.
As a homeschool family, we personally use them as part of our morning basket activities we start each day with and then have them accessible in our “wipe clean” activities tub for the kids to grab whenever they would like throughout the day. We also add them into our math drawer for extra practice.
How to Prep
These penguin number word tracing cards are great for preschoolers and kindergarteners and include cards for numbers zero through twenty as well as several differentiated recording sheets for extra practice. Plus – prep couldn’t be easier!
How to Play
My kids like to draw a penguin word card from a small basket or grab bag. After they draw a card they can use their dry erase marker to trace the number word.
If you don’t have dry marker erasers I like to give them a tissue or old sock to use as an eraser so they can practice tracing the number words over and over as they choose.
Once the students finish tracing their number word cards, they can grab a pencil and the recording sheet to write (or trace if using the tracing sheet) the number words on the page.
ADDITIONAL PRACTICE: Use the second recording sheet set to match the number word to the correct number.
Students will write or trace the number on the correct line.
