Number Workbook School Edition
This app supports children in learning how to write the numbers 1 to 20. It shows how to correctly write the numbers and analyses children's own attempts to provide them with useful practice and feedback. Please note, the School/Nursery edition of this app requires a subscription, which includes the Big Clever Learning platform.
From the Developer
Helping children learn to write numbers from 0-20
Using this Kizzu app from Sherston with children is great to help them develop their numeracy skills in a fun and engaging way.
How it works
Children set out on their quest to the castle, choosing which type of knight they want to be and if they're left or right handed before they go.
Starting at zero, they need to complete the number exercises and games to win armour and other objects which will help them along the way.
Within each number exercise, an interactive tracing guide teaches the child how to create the shape of the number with their finger. Once they have practised with the guide, a clear audio instruction asks them to try writing the number without it. This helps them to develop the confidence they need to form numbers on their own, step-by-step.
When a number is completed, the child is rewarded with a special star and positive encouragement to let them know they've done a great job. The exercises can be repeated as many times as the child likes so that they are able to write and recognise numbers in no time!
After a few numbers, children are given a fun game to play which helps reinforce how to write the number without the guide, as well as the number’s place in a sequence. The games include 'Count the number', 'Write the missing number' and 'Write the number'.
Children also win a new part of their Knight's outfit after each stage, which helps encourage them to finish all the exercises in order to reach the castle.

“Number Workbook allows the children to learn their number shape independently, which they love. The children are able to practice with the guide then test their skill without the guide. They really benefit from the instant feedback, the stars only appearing if they are precise, which really encourages good number formation.” C.Mogridge- Teacher
