The big bold numbers are traced several times using crayons or color pencils to understand the number formation.
What is Rainbow Writing (or Rainbow Tracing)?
In Rainbow Writing a child writes each number first with a pencil and then traces it multiple times with different color pencils. It helps children work on their fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination and beginning writing skills.
Tips for Parents/Teachers:
- Ask your child to trace the number several times with different color pencils to learn number formation.
- Supplement with the sand tracing activity. Fill a tray with activity sand and guide your child to trace different numbers on the sand.
