Colorful Hands worksheet for left and right hands

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!

    Susan, I really appreciate your sharing materials! I use many of them and my students really enjoy them. I am curious about how long you wait before introducing a method book to your preschool to second grade beginners. How do you assess that they are ready? Many thanks for your guidance.

      Maryjane, I don’t wait until they are ready. I wait so I can learn their their emotional age, learning style, frustration level, ability to focus, that kind of thing. This also gives me time to discover how much help they get at home, how much they practice, and how much their parents help with practice. There is no set time. A four year old is quite different than a 7 year old.
