This is a poem I made for my students to read and practice writing their numbers in the Handwriting Without Tears style. I model each number on the board one at a time while saying the rhyme and then have my students practice by using their fingers to draw on the palm of their hand.
Use the handwritting script (if they don't learn it now... they may have to relearn it later on). ex: B starts at the top, straight line down, back to the top, curve around to the middle and curve around to the bottom.

Q-tip Painting to practice writing letters...and numbers. I'd photocopy the Handwriting Without Tears book and their alphabet if that's the writing program used in your school district or whatever program they use if they use one in yours so you can directly connect the two to administration.
