Here are the rhymes that we use in class to help your child with their number formation.

0 = Around to my left to find my hero, back to the top, I’ve made a zero.

1 = A downward stroke, my that’s fun.  Now I’ve made the number one.

2 = Half a heart says “I love you.” Add a line. Now I’ve made the number two.

3 – Around the tree, around the tree, now I’ve made a number three.

4 = Down and across and down once more, now I’ve made the number four.

5 = Draw the back, the belly and the hat.  Watch out, it might come alive. It’s the number five.

6 = Bend down low to pick up sticks.  Now I’ve made the number six.

7 = Across the sky and down from heaven.  Now I’ve made the number seven.

8 = Make an “S” and close the gate.  Now you’ve made the number eight.
