Kids seem to come into my first grade class knowing how to make capital letters much better than lower case, so I created these pages to focus on making lowercase letters correctly. I later added capital letters and numbers 1-10. The initial practice is tracing dotted letters, starting on the dot and following the arrow directing kids in which way to go. The pages gradually transfer responsibility to the kids, with removing the arrow, then removing the dotted letters, but only having the dots in the correct starting places. Lastly, kids write independently. I hope these pages help your young writers as much as they help mine!
