New Zealand Essential Spelling Words - Handwriting Copy Cards

Handwriting copy cards for the NZ essential spelling lists 1-8.

♦ 10 words per card.
♦ 4 cards per A4 page.
♦ 35 cards (plus one bonus card)

The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter/number shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’.

Lists are 1-7 and list 8 is the ‘Commonly Misspelt Words’.

Each handwriting card has the list number in the top right corner.

A grey dashed line is used to indicate the half-way mark.

The 'bonus card' is the days of the week and the words 'yesterday, today, tomorrow'.
