This set of worksheets was created to help students with handwriting and Sight Word practice. These worksheets have a 1/2” line height. This is the same height found in primary ruled composition books. So, it is slightly higher than wide-ruled notebook paper at 3/8” line height. It’s a good height for students who are challenged by wide ruled paper. A blank page has been included. Students should trace the words, then copy the words using the starting dots and then write the words. There are 2 versions of the basic practice worksheets. The first version, has vertical lines between each letter and students skip a space between the words. The second version, has vertical lines for spacing between words and to contain the size of the words. It offers an increased challenge and an easy way to differentiate. An additional line has been included when necessary if the word can’t be written three times on one line.
Most of the sight words are repeated twice but no more. The words are grouped by starting strokes of letters but not necessarily the first letter. Some words like, shall, are on a page with words that start at the top and go down. Shall has 3 letters that start at the top even though the first letter doesn’t.
The last 6 pages are designed to reinforce where letters start in a relation to the space and within a word. Students need to match the words on the left side, to the starting dots on the right side. The words have been scrambled. Students should then write the words. I call this type of worksheet, Start Dot Matching. The students enjoy the challenge and it’s a sneaky way to work on handwriting.
The worksheets are in color but work fine printed in black ink only.
