Product Description
Nursery Rhymes are a great way to engage young learners. Use these Penmanship and Poetry handwriting pages to practice letter writing at the beginning of the year, or use them throughout the year as you introduce each letter of the alphabet.

Each handwriting page contains the following elements to support student learning:

• Example of correct letter formation at the top of each page

• Space to "trace and write" both the upper and lower case forms of each letter. Students will not lose correct letter formation, since they will trace the example and then make their own letter across the page in an alternating fashion.

• Students use visual discrimination to circle the focus letter. I have intentionally selected letters with similar letter formation to focus student attention on the correct letter.

• Lastly, students will look for letters within the focus poem. They may also color the accompanying picture.

These pages can be used in a variety of ways: whole group, independent work, small group, or at a literacy center. Students may create a dictionary on the back of the page by drawing and labeling words that begin with your focus letter. Have students look for, and highlight, sight words within the poem. Put each page in a sheet protector and let the students use a dry-erase marker to complete them at a center. The possibilities are endless!
