# 6 Writing Numbers Kindergarten

If you have a child who is in Kindergarten, it might be time to teach them how to write numbers. Whether they already have a grasp on basic addition and subtraction, or they are just starting out, numbers can be the building blocks of all sorts of things, from simple math problems to more complex programs like Sudoku, Go Fish, or Scrabble. In this article, I will talk about how to teach your child how to learn to write numbers in Kindergarten.

The very first step is for your child to find words they associate with numbers. One very neat trick is to use pictures of numbers to speak to your child. Try looking at the numbers on a poster, or in a wallet or other container that you can think of to help your child visualize the word and associate it with an image. This will help him or her associate words with images, increasing the chances that they will actually write the number down in the next few lessons. After doing this for a while, your child will get the hang of it and will probably be able to write down numbers on their own without your help.

After your child has started learning to write numbers, you will need to introduce him or her to real writing. You do this by having him or her write down words from the grocery list on your shopping list, or just normal letters and numbers in your wallet or notebook. It is important to keep your child’s confidence high, and not to try to scare them. Once they feel silly for writing down words, they are much less likely to continue this habit in school. Try to make your child “step out” of their comfort zone a bit, and not to use their imagination too much. Writing numbers down in front of other people, especially those they do not know, is a good way to build up your child’s confidence, so that they do not turn their back on numbers because they feel they are being scrutinized.

Your child should also understand why he or she is writing down the number, and how many times it is going to be used. For example, if your child chooses to write down his or her weight in pounds and ounces, and you know that this is going to be used to calculate his or her height. Make sure to explain what the numbers mean to him or her, and give them a specific number that they can reference when writing down numbers in the future. Make sure they understand that a zero is not part of the number, and they should understand that a higher number does not mean a smaller number, either.

After your child has started writing down numbers, you will want to take some time to read over the lesson and see what things your child may be missing. It can be an easy lesson to put together, but sometimes a child goes through a rough start to learning how to read and write. This can actually be a great time to go over something that your child is struggling with and to ask for help. There is no need to feel like you are being critical of your child – especially after all, most children find it hard to comprehend what is going on at first. It’s more important to get them comfortable with the concept of numbers, so that they can build on that and create their own words and phrases.

Writing numbers on a page is one of the easiest ways to introduce basic concepts to a young child. If your child struggles with writing down numbers in his or her head, or is not getting along with the concept of using numbers in sentences, you may want to start out with writing numbers on a sheet of paper and ask your child to type them in. You can also do this in front of a computer, using some free word processors that are available online. The important thing is to get your child interested and on the road to reading and writing, and to introduce numbers early on so that your child can get a head start.
