learning to write numbers rhymes - Anyone??

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by irisheyes1, Jun 23, 2007.

  1. Hi could anybody please send me the number rhymes that their school uses to teach children to write numbers. I think they are such a great idea and have Reception next year. Thanks so much from a grateful NQT

    Around and round and round we go, when we get home we have a 0.

    Start at the top and down we run, that's the way we make a 1.

    Around and back on the railroad track, 2, 2, 2.

    Around the tree and around the tree, that's the way we make a 3.

    Down and over and down some more, that's the way we make a 4.

    Down and around and a flag on high, that's the way we make a 5.

    Around to a loop, number 6 rolls a hoop.

    Across the sky and down from heaven, that's the way we make a 7.

    Make an S and do not wait, when we get home we have an eight.

    Make a loop and then a line, that's the way we make a 9.




    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." A line. Now I've made the number two.
    3 - Around the tree, Around the tree, Now I've made the number three
    4 - Down and across and down once more. Now I've made the number four
    5 - The hat. The back. The belly. It's a five. Watch out, it might come alive
    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 I've made the number eight.
    9 - Make an oval and a line. Now I've made the number nine.
    10 - One egg laid by a hen. Now I've made the number ten.








    Number 1 is like a stick,
    One straight line that is very quick.

    For number 2, go right around,
    Then make a line across the ground.

    Go right around, what will it be?
    Go round again to make a 3.

    Down and over, and down some more.
    That?s the way to make a 4.

    Go down and around, then you stop,
    Finish the 5 with a line on top.

    Make a curve, then make a loop,
    There are no tricks to make a 6.

    Across the sky and down from heaven,
    That?s the way to make a 7.

    Make a ?S? and then don?t wait,
    Go up again to make an 8.

    Make a loop and then a line,
    That?s the way to make a 9.

    Make a 1 and then an 0 ?
    10 are all your fingers, you know
