Today for Throwback Thursday I’m continuing to review material for beginners. Over the years I’ve posted many froggie worksheets and today I’m showing four that can be used at the very first lesson. [Scroll down to see the links.]
I don’t use a method book when preschool through 2nd grade students begin lessons. There are many excellent ones available, but I like to wait until I have a good feel for how my new student learns before I purchase a set of books. That is why I have made so much material at the beginning level. I give them a binder and I use my material until I feel they are ready for a book.
These worksheets are for learning finger numbers and left/right hands. If you have a lot of students, save ink by putting them in clear plastic sheet protectors and using wet or dry erase markers.
Except for the hand tracing page, these are also iPad friendly, so feel free to upload them into an app such as Notability. If you use the hand tracing page on your iPad, try drawing a hand rather than tracing because my students were not successful tracing their hand on an iPad!
