I use this for part of our handwriting practice. It is a simple and quick activity to use in addition to whatever handwriting routine/curriculum you do in your classroom. It is also a great piece to send home that helps the parent see where their child is at, how they can help them practice, etc.
This page would actually be the final step for my student. On the first day I edit the document to read __ ELEN and each day/week, remove one of the letters, replacing it with a blank until it's all blanks.
I created it to be used as a half sheet, making it great for a 2-day a week preschool program or to complete the top portion at school and bottom at home.
Simply change the name to fit your student's and adjust the blanks to coordinate with the name.
