So many times kids need just a bit more practice than they get from their school and Math programs. Give your students practice with these super easy assignments.
Writing the numbers gives the kinesthetic boost that some students need to be able to remember the names. Encourage students to say the names of the numbers as they write or color the figures so that they'll remember them better.
Our kids found it easier to write numbers with ruled lines and a good model. Most children do because they know the limits.
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:
Every once in a while, especially at the beginning of the school year, our kids needed a review of using a ruler and I made these worksheets so that we could quickly practice whether or not we could find our rulers. :-)

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.

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:
