It helps to understand that the number they will write has a sequence. If your kid start recognizing the number, then you can start to write the number. The simplest number is 1.
If you run out of the picture objects, then try to create your own picture. Ask your children to follow and imitate the picture. This might need an extra effort.
This can be done step by step. After a quarter, continue to the half and finish until the perfect spiral. It’s better to start the spiral from the center.
This is the very first step before your kid can write on a blank paper. Never push them to do so until they can manage to trace perfectly. You also need to make a summative evaluation by start counting the number together with kid.
Don’t push your kids too hard. Take a break when they felt bored. You also can engage them to sing together during the break. Learning from home is actually challenging, yet can be a good activity that will bring a good impact.
For the advanced exercise, if you think that your kids have already got their line traced tidily, then you also can make the other line examples with more complex shapes.
It will enhance the motoric skill for your kid. Evaluate the result by seeing whether the line is tracing tidily or not. If it’s not quite tidy, then you can ask your kids to repeat the progress. Remember, you also need to praise them as the positive reinforcement. Kids will always get an encouragement from a simple praise.
Reinforcement is the key for the kid’s encouragement. Praise them if they can achieve writing their first number, even it’s as simple as writing number “1”. Continue the next step for the next number. Again, you can always make a demonstration for the tracing.
The next worksheet for playgroup that can be used is the shape tracing worksheets. It’s also has a nice function for stimulating the soft motoric skill in children.
This also can be done by giving them an offer about the reward if they can finish the task. After done with the preparation, you can start instruct the kid to tracing the shapes. At this stage, you also can introduce the name of the shapes.
It will make your kid enjoy to have an exercise. The reward is not really necessary for this kind of exercise. Simply give them a praise so they will get encouraged for more exercise.
As usual, you have to give an instruction for your kid. Teach them about the difference between straight line and spiral line. The spiral line usually comes with the complex shape.
