I made number tracing cards for number identification, pre-writing skills, and fine motor development. You can print the patterns on regular or color cardstock paper.
Cut the number squares out and laminate. I have included black and white as well as color version of the tracing cards. We printed these on color cardstock paper because it added a nice variety and was easy on the ink.
I put the cards out in a basket along with washable markers. I set the basket on table and the children self-selected the cards to trace. They identified the number on the card and traced the dash line with their fingers. They then used the marker to trace the numbers.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added Alphabet Tracing Cards.
