Product Description
Many students do not know how to form letters in an efficient, left-to right way. In grades K-2, it’s usually possible to re-teach this, which helps eliminate reversals, and enables the student to print more quickly and legibly (after practice, of course), and be better prepared for cursive. Some older students respond well to being asked to correct their letter formation once they feel how much more fluid and legible their writing is when they print efficiently, but the earlier, the better. Some letters (herein referred to as “bouncy letters”), when formed correctly, start at the top, go down to baseline and bounce back up: r, n, m, h, p, b. Other letters (“2 o’clock letters”) start with the crucial C shape and can, without lifting pencil from paper, be magically turned into other letters: o, a, d, g, q and (though not a full C shape), f.

See Bat-Ball (bouncy), Doorknob-Door (2 o'clock) posters and individual student cards also in this store. They are visual, mnemonic aids that support correct letter formation.
