Ancient Romans used a special type of method of writing numbers. They used the symbols, I, X, L, C, D and M, and dashes over very large numbers. Even though learning these relics from ancient days might seem unimportant, Roman Numerals are still in use today on clocks, and in books, among other places, making reading Roman Numerals a great skill to acquire. Here are some great free printables to help children learn to recognise and memorise Roman Numerals.
Roman Numeral Puzzle
A fun way to introduce Roman Numerals to children is with these Roman Numerals Puzzles. These four-piece puzzles are great for learning the numbers from 1 through 20. To prepare, just download, print, cut and laminate for durability. The four parts of each puzzle includes: the number, the Roman Numeral, dots and pictures.
Roman Numeral Coloring Book
Another great way to introduce Roman Numerals to young children is with this Roman Numeral Coloring Book. Including all the numbers from 1 through 20 as well as 50, 100, 500 and 1000, the pages of this book can also be laminated and held together with a binder ring as well used in memory and matching games.
Roman Numeral Color By Code

Roman Numeral Clocks
The numbers on these analogue clock cards are all in Roman Numerals. Children can use these cards in multiple ways, to learn their Roman Numerals as well as learn to read the time on clocks. These time cards come in five-minute intervals, can be used in memory or matching games. A fun, hands-on activity for using these cards is to have children shuffle them, then choosing one card at a time, they can match the time on a real clock as they say the time.
