Teacher Language

 

Make a statement

‘We are going to write the number x’.

 

Give an instruction

‘Trace number X’.

‘Copy number X’.

‘Write number X’.

 

Correction/prompt

‘What number is that?’

‘What number did you write?’

‘Try again’.

‘Have a look’.

When carrying out any of the following teaching activities it will be necessary to use different levels of support as indicated in the guidelines table at the beginning of Number. Fade this support as the student works towards developing independence.

 

When beginning to teach this goal the students should be exposed to the correct method of forming numbers. However, how the student eventually writes numbers independently is not a priority. Students need only to be able to consistently represent a number legibly so that others are always able to identify what that number is.

 

Students would be given a variety of resources to enable them to write the numerals 0-9. Depending on student ability, the numbers can be taught in sequential or non-sequential order. For students who have difficulty succeeding with this goal, numbers that are easy to write would be focussed on first e.g. 1, 7 and 9.  Activities may include number stencils, laminated number sheets and IWB activities.

 

Writes with physical assistance.

Teacher states ‘SN, we are going to write the number X’. Teacher uses hand over hand method to aid the student in writing the number using the correct formation. 

 

Traces numerals.

Teacher states ‘SN, trace the number X’. Stencils that have arrows to indicate the correct way of forming the number could be used as a visual prompt when appropriate.

 

Copies a model of a numeral.

A written model of the number is place in front of the student. Teacher states ‘SN, copy the number X’.

 

Independently creates numerals.

Teacher states ‘SN, write the number X’. No visual cues are provided.
