So many uses in the Classroom with this Handy Resource!
Rhyme and Images to Support Memory
Practice or Warm Up Sheet
Portfolio Sample - showing comparison from Term 1 to Term 3
Five uses for only Five Dollars!
This handwriting sheet was very much loved in my early years classrooms by students, teachers and parents too.
Little learners have so much to think about when learning to write lowercase letters.
How to hold their pencil, which direction to move, the start and exit points of a letter, and where to place each letter when using dotted thirds.
Based on a rhyme "one letter is friendly, some letters are tall, some letters have tails and some letters are small" we used visual pictures and body movements to sort lowercase letters into these categories.
I have heard that f is a "greedy" letter because it goes to all the spaces/lines, but I prefer saying that it is "friendly" and it visits "four" lines as the f alliteration helps build memory. Try it!
I have used this resources as a
::an anchor chart, enlarged to A3, and letters are explored and added to the sort
::Pre and Post Assessment piece, especially to compare Term 1 with Term 3 handwriting
::Portfolio work sample
:: Practice Sheet
I always had this printed in A3 and laminated for handwriting warm ups
and letter ID sorting games, which students placed magnets in the correct place
So many uses from one simple resource!
