Writing Numbers in D’Nealian and Zaner-Bloser Font

The handwriting numbers lesson teaches students to write numbers in four different ways, so that they can experiment and find what works best for them. 

When you choose a number in the style you’d like to practice, you are brought to a slide with plenty of room to practice writing the number chosen. Each slide includes a video to help students visualize the motions required to write the number, including numbered instructions if it requires more than one stroke.

We suggest that you combine this lesson with one of our many early-grade addition and subtraction lessons, or lessons about the number line. Customize our learning materials to better fit the needs of your classroom!

Practice Writing Print and Cursive Letters

When learning a skill as fundamental as handwriting, it can be helpful to give students multiple options for how they choose to write. Luckily, our handwriting lessons give students detailed instructions on how to write capital and lowercase letters in both print and cursive, in the D’Nealian and Zaner-Bloser fonts. 

So that students can choose the font that they want to try writing in, all of these lessons come with handy links on the bottom so that students can browse the different fonts. 

All the letter diagrams come with arrows to guide the students writing. In the lessons for print letters, this includes numbered steps to show where and how students should pick up their “pencil.” Which font will your students prefer?
