Here is my first Interactive Notebook. I decided to focus on lowercase letters with this notebook. Lowercase letters take are harder to learn but those are the letters we read and write the most.
The notebook starts with matching uppercase and lowercase letters. Then on to basic strokes. It's important to get the strokes going from top to bottom, left to right and counter clockwise.
The lowercase letters are sorted by the starting strokes and in alphabetical order within the group.
The last activity is sorting by letter size; tall, short and dive. I talk about letter size all the time with students. Letter size really effects legibility.
I use instructions from the TV Teacher DVD or app. Zaner Bloser has an app with good verbal instructions and demonstrations. There are other apps with good instructions. I really want my products to coordinate and blend with other handwriting programs.
