Finger Number Flashcards for the Beginning Student

I started 2 new students this past week, which inspired me to make these flashcards to help them learn their finger numbers. It seems like every student has their own personal challenges and I try to cater to those specific needs and help them overcome those challenges. These particular students were having a bit of trouble remembering their finger numbers.

The cards are very simple and can be used for a matching game, or just to drill finger numbers during lesson time. There are 2 types of cards, with a set for RH and LH. One set that shows a hand with a finger number in the middle:


and another set with an arrow pointing to the different fingers:


These flashcards are available on my printables page under the flashcard section. Please feel free to print them and use them with your own students!

    1. Thanks Stace. I enjoy the creativity aspect of it, and especially finding fun ways to drill skills that particular students may struggle with. They're nothing spectacular (I don't have any fancy programs or software), but they work! :)
