Handwriting Without Tears
We are currently using the Handwriting Without Tears program to teach the children how to properly form letters and numbers. This program follows a wet, wet, dry, try approach, followed by hand over hand practice in their workbook. Below you can find the verbiage that is used in our classroom when we are forming the letters. You can use this to help your child when they are writing or practicing at home.
We refer to "Capital" or "Tall" letters as Uppercase letters in our classroom. All of our Uppercase letters start at the top. Below is how we are teaching the children to form their uppercase letters. Please click here or below the image to download a copy for yourself.
We refer to "small" letters as lowercase letters in our classroom. Lowercase letters like start at the "helper line", not at the top, except for the "rule breakers" (f, h, t, l, k, b, d). Below is how we are teaching the children to form their lowercase letters. Please click here or below the image to download a copy for yourself.
