As a Kindergarten teacher, I strive to teach my students the mechanics of handwriting starting on day one. Handwriting is such an important aspect of education because it not only supports reading and letter acquisition, but also helps students to become more efficient writers.
In this Simple Handwriting Practice Pages pack, you will find resources for teaching Ball and Stick letters to your young writers in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and First Grade. There are 5 different types of handwriting pages included in this pack for each of the 26 letters:
*Pre-Writing Capitals: Students will trace basic stroke marks, trace the letter, then write the letter on their own
*Capitals: Students will trace the letter
*Pre-Writing Lowercase: Students will trace basic stroke marks, trace the letter, then write the letter on their own
*Lowercase: Students will trace the letter
*Skills Practice: This is perfect for Pre-K and incoming Kindergarten students because it provides a large letter for coloring, a large picture starting with the letter for coloring, letters to trace, and letters to write on their own
You will notice that the capital and lowercase letters are separated in this pack and do not show up on the same page together. For developmental purposes, I teach my Kindergarteners the basic strokes of capital letters when introducing the alphabet before teaching them the more advanced lowercase letters. You may also choose to introduce letters this way to your students for handwriting purposes, or you could copy the capital and lowercase pages back-to-back to give your students practice with both formations of the letter.
