PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Getting it Write set includes 52 pages of printing practice in the traditional manuscript style of letter formation. Full and half-sheet practice pages are provided for each letter of the alphabet. All pages include detailed instructions for printing the featured letter. A boldface representation of the letter is also provided with numbered arrows to demonstrate each step of the proper formation. Additionally, dashed representations of each letter are given for students to trace as they acquaint themselves with proper formation. Black circles are provided in every row as a prompt for where students should begin each letter. The full-page sheets include a drawing as a visual reminder of the letter’s sound.

Many of my letter directions begin with the phrase “make a one.”
This is a reference to a common mantra in my classroom to which
all students can relate: “Step Number One is to Make a One!”

Suggestions for Use:
Dedicate a portion of your weekly classroom instruction to letter formation. Teach one letter at a time. One the first day, introduce the letter and the steps for creating the featured letter. Students can draw the letter in the air, create the letter using play-dough, write the letter on whiteboards... the sky is the limit. After students have had a day (or longer) to explore proper letter formation in a kinesthetic way, revisit the letter and teach them how to create it on lined paper. Each page in this packet includes detailed directions for how to create the letters of the alphabet. Recite these steps orally while you demonstrate the motions and encourage students to recite the steps while they work.

Use the half-sheet practice pages for a fast way to provide additional support. They are great for students struggling with specific letters and are great for practice at home. Directions are provided on each page to encourage consistency between home & school.

Do you have the writing practice in D'Nealian font?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 8, 2013Maria Manore answered:
Unfortunately, I do not have a D'Nealian version at this time. This particular product took me MONTHS to create and get just right and a D'Nealian version will take me some time as well. I am hoping to create it one day, but I am not sure how long it will take. I'm so sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

On  April 28, 2013,  Stephanie T. asked:
I love the simple directions included with each letter. Is it possible to create a Dnealian style option ?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 28, 2013Maria Manore answered:
It took me several months to create the Traditional Formation set. I will add a D'Nealean set to my product request list... It largely depends upon how well my traditional set is received and if I can find the perfect D'Nealean font, but I will see what I can do!

Thanks!
