This 300 page handwriting resource has two complete sets of letters and numbers (print and cursive) for you to quickly make tracing cards, posters, desktop cards and activities or worksheets.
This inspiration for making this resource came after visiting my favourite ‘teacher shop’ full of amazing educational resources – only to find that a simple set of handwriting cards was $24.95. That was just for one set of 26 laminated cards in A5 size for display purposes. I needed numbers as well which was another $12.95.
So I decided to make the resources instead! This grew to over 300 pages of print and cursive letters and numbers ready to use to make cards, worksheets, tracing sheets and even for your interactive whiteboard and 1:1 computer program.
Teaching handwriting often requires a multitude of resources, with lots of opportunity for practice and additional help for some students with learning needs. I have Occupational Therapist friends who use these cards with manipulatives such as Play Doh (to make the letters and numbers), little cards (to ‘drive’ them), little dinosaurs (to stomp along them) and so on.
This handwriting resource is based on a beautiful handwriting used in Australia that is based on a calligraphy cursive style of handwriting. After teaching around 8 different handwriting styles, and across several continents, it really is the nicest handwriting style I’ve ever taught.
While some educational systems around the world must use a specific font, many other schools and home schooling families are free to use a multitude of resources to teach handwriting.
This resource includes all the tools you need to create display cards, desk charts, tracing cards. It has suggestions for use and assessment grids.
And with a digital product, you get to make as many as you like, replace as they grow worn, and have the digital file to make another set if you move classes or schools!
Some education systems begin with a beginners’ print, then move to learn the ‘entries and exits’ as a transition to cursive complete with joins. Other education systems begin with the individual cursive letters from the beginning (that have the ‘entries’ and exits’ to the letter already in place), then simply learn the joins.
Select the cards that suit your purpose and you’re ready to go!
