The trees have shed their leaves, the nights are getting longer and it’s getting a whole lot colder. It can mean only one thing – winter is here! So why not stay in and enjoy this snowflake counting and tracing worksheet? It’s a great way for your children to practice their number formation and counting skills.
Simply print it off, give them a pencil or some crayons and encourage them to count the snowflakes and carefully trace over the numbers in the clouds – then when they’ve finished, they get to color them all in!
What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
This number tracing printable is designed to help your children practice and develop their prewriting skills, such as:
- Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
- Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
- Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
- One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once.
- Number formation – understanding what the numbers look like and how to form them
- Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement
These are all vital fine motor skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!
