Alphabet Handwriting Practice: Letter Formation Pages with Songs and Rhymes
Alphabet writing poems for each of the 26 lowercase letters are fun and energizing handwriting instruction for all young writers including general education students, students with disabilities such as autism, ADHD, ADD, or a learning disability! As a preschool, kindergarten, or first grade teacher you are tasked with the job of not only teaching children what the abcs are and how to write the letters of the alphabet but how to form the letters correctly. But teaching children the proper way to write is challenging for all involved, so I created catchy songs made up of short, rhyming poems to explain the way each lowercase letter of the alphabet is formed. The set includes explicit instruction found in posters of each letter, a single poster with all 26 abcs (printed on an 8 ½” * 14” page), printable work pages, demonstrational writing videos, and mp3 audio clips of each alphabet writing song. Each alphabet letter has a short video that shows how to write the letter while the rhyme is sung. The printables include 26 cards of alphabet letters with a solid letter, the words to the rhyme, and a cartoon picture to represent each letter. A Zaner-Bloser set of printables for your students to practice tracing and writing (one set with handwriting line guides and another without) and the same type of set for D’Nealian. I use the practice tracing pages along with posters to make writing journals.
Short letters framed are in red, tall letters are framed in blue and basement letters are framed in green.
These songs have also been used for students with special needs including those with autism, other health impairments, specific learning disabilities, and cognitive disabilities.
Directions: Print the desired set of posters. If you are making journals, print the posters with the traceable letters and then copy the corresponding letter to the back side of the poster for extra writing practice. Play an alphabet video a day and play the mp3 audio clips as needed during writing practice.
