Handwriting:  Handwriting Practice Print

Handwriting: Handwriting Practice Print

This Practice Makes Perfect read, trace, write, and draw handwriting workbook was created for Year 2, but I believe it would also be beneficial other students who require extra practice with handwriting skills. I hope it proves to be both challenging and fun for your students as they practise reading, tracing, writing and drawing.✎ The first page helps practice handwriting formation and includes a word beginning with the focus letter, along with a picture cue. Students can also colour, as well as identify words beginning with the focus letter and illustrate these. ✎ The second page allows students to read, trace and write a phrase containing a word beginning with the focus letter and identifies additional words for the students to trace and illustrate.✎ A front cover can be added from a choice of 3. ✎ This handwriting pack can be used for morning work, independent work or may be used in a whole group setting.✎ The pages may be copied back to back and stapled as a booklet. ******************************************************CONTENT• Cover• Teacher Notes• Workbook Front Covers• Handwriting Workbook• TOU/CreditsPAGE COUNT: 59**********************************************************RELATED RESOURCES**********************************************************Teacher's Toolkit Handwriting
