20 Writing Numbers Worksheets for Kindergarten
I have put together a list of writing numbers worksheets for kindergarten students to help build upon early math skills. Whether your kids are getting ready for kindergarten, are attending full-day kindergarten, or need support before moving onto the next grade, these kindergarten math worksheets are great for extra practice.
In kindergarten, the kids are expected to learn now to write number words 0-10. This is a different skill than number recognition and number formation. Instead of writing the digit number, kindergarten age children are expected to write “one” when asked to write the number word for 1, and so on. Some consider these to be a part of the kindergarten sight words. At the bottom of the post, I will add a link for more ways to practice sight words, and more free kindergarten worksheets.
Here are a few printable kindergarten worksheets to practice writing number words:
- Making Words: Numbers 0-10 (free worksheets to practice building number words with cut and glue activities, writing skills, and drawing number sets)
- Number Words Clip Cards (this activity combines fine motor skills with number word recognition)
- Write the Room Numbers (Includes two skills: writing number words and counting sets of objects. Great as a math center or activity to do at home)
- Dinosaur Number Writing (Includes tracing number words and other fun counting activities)
To conquer the skill of finding missing numbers, a kindergarten teacher will first spend a lot of time on rote counting. Rote counting is an important skill to lays the foundation for a solid number sense.
It’s important to know, rote counting is not the same as giving a quantity of objects, or identifying numbers. Instead, this is an early childhood math skill where the kids learn to recite numbers in sequential order from memory.
Once the students know how to rote count and identify numbers, they begin to notice when numbers are missing in a set of sequential numbers. These Counting to 100 worksheets have 21 pages of “fill in the missing number” pages, plus more writing numbers worksheets for kindergarten.
Counting to 100 includes:
