Become an astronaut and improve cursive writing: Space, 7 -11 yr, KS1 & KS2, Yr 3, Yr 4, Yr 5, Yr6

(1)
Do you have children interested in space and wish to become an astronaut? Do you need to teach older children to write legible, fluent, clearly formed cursive letters? This resource combines teaching children about Space with cursive letter writing practice. It asks a child to: • Trace, copy and write the alphabet • Complete an application form to be an astronaut. • Complete an id badge and medical badge • Draw a picture of their astronaut suite • Plan a 7 step checklist for their moonwalk • Write a tweet home about their time in space • Write a short story with guidance on beginning, middle and end • Write a short story with a thesaurus prompt for those who use the same word repeatedly The children think they are learning about how to become an astronaut by writing words, sentences and short stories. They are in fact… developing their joined up writing skills by drawing letter formations, copying key facts, writing sentences and developing their comprehension skills when writing their story on the lined paper. It helps children in Years 3 to 6, meeting the UK curriculum needs of Key Stage 1, Lower KS 2 and Upper KS2 to develop: • Letter formations and joins • Establishing handwriting movement patterns • Starting and finishing points • The correct direction to follow • The number of strokes involved to produce a letter • Size and spacing of letters It uses an award winning writing font teaching children where to start, which direction to write and where to stop. This is particularly useful for children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and for those who are slow writers. Created by myself, I use occupational therapy techniques to improve a child’s writing throughout the pack by using a developmental process. The best bit is that they have no idea how much this resource is improving their handwriting as they are interested in learning more space and how to become an astronaut. I use it and I know it works. When I have used it a child’s imagination banishes their fear for writing. One child suggested alien snacks was a need on his 7 point checklist for the moon walk. You do not need to think of anything as it has been done for you! Just print out and use. There are 18 pages of worksheets and guidance notes. Suitable to whole class, small groups and 1 to 1 sessions.

Letter joins: un,um,ig,id,ed,eg,an,or,in

(0)
Letter joins - Cowgirls (un,um,ig,id,ed,eg,an,or,in) is a handwriting worksheet to teach joined up handwriting. Here you will find 9 worksheets. Each one is designed to help a child develop the essential skill of letter joins. The reason why this is so important is that it helps develop the ability to write at speed. A skill needed for exams. The way that I use these sheets is for a child to use either a pencil or pen. They should then complete sections 1 to 5. •The first section helps a child recognise where the join should happen by drawing an arrow from one letter to another. •The second section is where the child then practices joining the letters together. They should do this on the lines enclosed. •The third section helps to develop the muscle memory skills needed for speed writing and this is why they are asked to write the joins without looking. •The fourth section helps them to practice writing these letters within the context of words that they should know. e.g. On the sheet ig, the words are big, pigs and high. •The last section, number five, is where a child tries to think of words that contain these letter joins. This is the hardest section of the page and may be omitted you if feel that is not appropriate for the child you are working with. As an extra, they can colour in the cowboy related images.

Printed handwriting - Princess themed, alphabet worksheets

Here you will find 7 sheets helping a child develop their ability to write all the letters of the alphabet. The child also receives a certificate and you get guidance notes! The style of handwriting is the printed handwriting script. It starts with asking the child to draw their own princess and knight. Next they are asked to trace over the alphabet letters in both upper and lower case. They are then asked to create and write the names of 3 items a princess may have with her. Once completed the child is asked to repeat tracing over the letters of the alphabet. This time there are darker circles on the page. The child is asked to collect all the letters and guess a word linked to the theme of being a princess. Lastly, they are asked to trace the sentences. The words in these sentences are linked to the phonics that your child will be learning at school. In my experience by asking the child to draw their own picture gets them really excited to complete the rest of this activity as their imaginations have been inspired. I hope they enjoy ‘being a princess’.

Handwriting Goal Setting Success

Here you will find 3 activity sheets and 2 advice sheets designed to help you or a child set their own handwriting goals. Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate whether a person has handwriting difficulty or whether they find what to write a struggle. By using these sheets it will help you or a child set their own handwriting goals that are realistic and measurable. This can be particularly helpful if you are writing individual learning plans (ILP). The way that I use these sheets is if the child is old enough I sit down with them and ask them to write a sentence or a paragraph. Then using that piece of written work I ask them to review it by colouring the circles based on how they feel about their handwriting and how they feel about what they have written. The children should score numerically but can also use the cat emoji faces to help them decide their answers.
