Read, Write, Inc- Pre-cursive letter formation

Read, Write, Inc- Pre-cursive letter formation

We teach RWI in our school but also needed pre-cursive writing to go alongside it. I was unable to find any other resource that showed both the RWI and the rhyme with a pre-cursive letter too. I have used this to send to parents to help with children's letter formation at home. Teachers have used these as posters during lessons to teach pre-cursive letter formation.
