Handwriting  - Letter Formation Visual Aids
Letter formation:

This is a handy set of printables that serve as visual cues and reminds of the formation of letters for your beginning writers. The giraffe, chicken and monkey method is beautifully illustrated using blue skylines and brown ground lines to help students to eventually remember which letters sit where using the three-line handwriting format.

In this set you get the posters and individual letter tiles for your students to manipulate.

A Teacher's Idea


Alphabet - Letter Writing Starter Sheets (From A to Z). -This is a set of alphabet writing sheets, tracing mats and playdough learning mats for your young learners.

Alphabet Writing - {Visual Clue Posters and Cards}. These were created and inspired by my 5 year olds who showed some difficulty with the formation of letters. These are an enhancement to the sketches and visual images that I drew on the whiteboard to help them remember the directions and start points.
