Writing numbers from 0 to 10

Practice number writing with a song (with lyrics and video)

Zero is where it all begins
Curve down around and up again.

Number one is so much fun
Pull straight down and you're got a one.

Number two is easy to do
Up around down and across makes two.

Number three is simple to see
Draw two humps sideways and that's a three.

Number four I do adore
Go down, across, then down some more.

We're reached five, now let's not stop
Pull down, circle round, put a hat on top.

Number six is easy to fix
Big curve, small loop will give you six.

Number seven is really sizzling
Straight across, slant down, and that's a seven.

Number eight isn't very straight
Make "S" then back up for an eight.

Number nine I think you're fine
A loop on top of a long straight line.

Number ten we've reached the end
Put a one by a zero and count again.
