# Do you know the numbers?

Our lovely first graders are learning so much while studying their math block, number by number, comprehending the meaning of each and not only memorizing the names and the shapes. We are so proud of them!

Do you know the numbers? you may ask,
the answer is simple, yes I do!
Can you write the numbers? you may ask,
the answer is quite simple, of course, I can!

Following the teacher’s directions, copying the traces made on the blackboard we learn and exercise the way to express quantities and numbers.

The number one, made of two straight traces;
The number two, of one straight and one curved line;
Number three comes out of two small arches that look like twin rainbows standing up.

Do you know the numbers? you may ask,
the answer is simple, yes I do!
Can you write the numbers? you may ask,
the answer is quite simple, of course, I can!

Number four, made of three straight lines, the one standing is really tall, and the other two are: one inclined to the left and one horizontal;
The five is more complicated, two straight lines, one vertical and one horizontal, accompanied by a half-circle on the base;
The six is the funniest one, it looks like a spiral, just like the one on the shell of a snail.

Do you know the numbers? you may ask, the answer is simple, yes I can!
Can you write the numbers? you may ask,
the answer is quite simple, of course, I can!

The seven looks a lot like the number one, but it means six figures grater, if you draw the number one and cut the tall standing line by the middle with a short horizontal line you will surely have the number seven well drawn;
The eight looks like a small bear, with two circles, one on the top of the other;
The nine is really elegant and powerful, it looks like a cone of ice cream or a tree, it’s formed by a long curved line standing up with a fancy circle on the top.
