So many times kids need just a bit more actual practice than they get from their school and math programs.
Give your students math practice with these super easy assignments.
These Math worksheets offer plenty of practice without overwhelming little ones. Once the number can be made well, less drill is necessary. Use these number writing worksheets for beginner or for refresher practice.
Color these ten numbers, 0-9.
See first grade letter coloring pages here.
Kids can practice writing their numbers and drawing to show the value of each number. A dice, or square with dots, shows the value easily.
Ask the children to leave the space of their finger between each number, or leave a comma and a space. Usually, three or four repetitions are enough to get the idea.
Encourage students to say the names of the numbers as they write or color the figures so that they'll remember them better. This is true for writing numbers or letters.
Kids find it easier to write numbers with ruled lines and a good model of the shape and placement of the numbers. Most children orient better when they know the limits.
This set of 18 math worksheets shows the number word lists in manuscript writing from 1-100. These show the written numbers 21-99 hyphenated as taught in Saxon Math.

Writing numbers gives the kinesthetic boost that some students need to be able to remember the names of numbers.
These five pages are for children who already write well without top, middle and base lines yet need spelling or writing review.
A fun way to write numbers is to write Roman numerals. They're like writing in code! They also use addition and subtraction to show the value. See more about Roman numerals here.
Every once in a while, especially at the beginning of the school year, kids need a quick review of using a ruler. Remember that a ruler or yardstick is also a number line.
These worksheets offer quick measuring practice whether or not you can find a ruler. :-)
There are two main systems of measurement:
These printable measurement worksheets are accurate. You can cut out the printable ruler for standard measurements.
One set measures inches and the other measures centimeters.
There are two first grade math worksheets with each of these PDF downloads.

Our regular Math books are the Saxon Math textbooks. I love, love, love John Saxon's Investigations every ten lessons. His Investigation for measuring with rulers was so helpful and his Investigation for measuring quarts and gallons has stuck with our children ever since the first class. I myself had not ever seen it that easily put. I myself have remembered them better and have been able to explain them better.
I find that measurement activities do more good when you offer the actual rulers, gallons and thermometers for a reality check at the same time. Our kids have remembered the English system of volume measurement for years with this one demonstration in the Saxon Investigations:
You can make all sorts of associations with this. What happens when I cannot find a tablespoon? Simply use three teaspoons. If I have a gallon of cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving, how many pints or quarts can I give as gifts? If the children see real life examples, they remember the proportions in measuring more easily.
You can do similarly with three rulers and a yardstick:
Voila! Your kids will have instant understanding and a long term memory! Remember to use the real tools of measurement before or as you use our worksheets to make a longer lasting impression. You might also like these other first grade Math worksheets:
First grade children are just beginning to see basic math problems as equations. So far they've been learning to count and perhaps comparing larger numbers to smaller numbers.
This is a super important time to make sure the children learn their math facts. Adding is next after learning to count, yet if you're teaching skip counting remember that this is multiplication and share that with the kids. They're excited when they learn big kid facts.
The twos and tens are easy skip count tables.
If you teach the multiplication side of it, you can also teach the division side. It is marvelous how intertwined math is and how some children can see it at a glance.
First grade is pretty early for multiplication and division, yet I know children who have mastered all four tables within a few months at six and seven years old without a gruelling effort.
All four of the math operations are in easy format at PrintNPractice for your students to copy and memorize the answers to adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.
If you are homeschooling or otherwise free to compare addition and subtraction, do so. The children often see how to subtract as they learn to add.
We also have Christmas number writing worksheets with the classic Twelve Days of Christmas pictures to color.
