Product Description
Handwriting Patterns – Lines and Letters is a set of pre-writing posters, cards, mats and worksheets that help students to practice the writing patterns needed to form the letters of alphabet correctly. This set encourages students to start drawing different type of lines - the first step in pencil control and enhances both motor planning and fine motor skills.
Included in this set are varying handwriting line formats for differentiated practice, letter and word mats, posters and alphabet cards.

---❀❀❀---Handwriting Pattern Mats and Worksheets - The Handwriting Pattern Mats contain tracing lines for multiple practice opportunities. The patterns include: straight, horizontal, diagonal, zig zag, curved, wavy, castle top and lots more! Each mat also has check boxes for students to keep their posture and hand grip in check!

---❀❀❀---Letter Characteristics Posters -These posters depict both the UPPERCASE and lowercase letters of the alphabet according to these characteristics:
Straight letters
Tall letters
Short letters
Donut letters
Diagonal letters
Letters with tails
Letters with curves
Letters with humps and closed humps
I also included the grouping uppercase (capital) and lowercase (common).

These groupings are particularly useful for the teaching and revision of letter and can be used as a sequence for the introduction of the letters. Once the similarities of movement are pointed out, then students are able to develop a metacognitive awareness of letter formation that can support their practices of letter writing.

These are my own suggested groupings, however, if you wish for any other to be included you can let me know via the Q&A tab.

---❀❀❀---The “Letter Looks Like” Cards is my own creation in which each letter is fixed to an object, animal or person as a visual reminder of form. I have tried to align them based also on initial sound to make a meaningful connection for students.

---❀❀❀---Letter Form Visual “Make It!” Cards - There are 26 cards (2 per print) that show students how to make their own model of the letter using either straight lines, curved or circular shapes.

---❀❀❀---Letter and Word Practice Mats - These mats are geared towards guiding students to write freely within grids or frames. There are 2 x 2 grids (large letters); 3 x 2 grids ; multiple grid rows and large single lines then soft double guide lines for more precise handwriting. I also included a handwriting free style sheet and letter formation sheets with start points for students to keep in their writing folders.

---❀❀❀---Fillable Letter Mats - With these letter mats your students can use playdoh (playdough), chain links or any medium to fill the space within the letters. These work well as write on and wipe off mats that can be laminated or placed in plastic sleeves.
