How critical is the "writing numbers song". My daughter knows how to write a lot her numbers and i had to sit down with my husband to kinda figure out what "writing numbers song" really was. So since my daughter knows how to write all her numbers (30+) do i need to confuse/start her with that? I dont want to skip anything being a new method... and rehearsing this song showed up in the early lesson plans about 3x, yet i think we are ok to skip.
Hi, Lori. My name is Rachel and I am happy to answer your question today.
If your daughter already knows how to write her numbers, it is not necessary to learn the song. When I taught my kids using RightStart Math my kids already knew how to write their numbers so we didn't use the song. It was not problematic at all within the curriculum.
