Handwriting games - Find the superhero, Key Stage 2, (Years 3, 4, 5, 6)

(0)
Handwriting games - Find the superhero, Key Stage 2, (Years 3, 4, 5, 6) is an exciting way to combine teaching handwriting and superhero fun. Handwriting doesn't have to be boring! It is possible to improve handwriting by playing games. As a children's occupational therapist I often use visual perceptual games of spot the difference, matching, finding the shapes hidden within a picture to help children develop these essential visual skills. Without this ability noticing the differences between the letters 't' and 'l' or placing spaces between words becomes more difficult. This is a 'done for you' pack. There are 9 different images where the children have to find the superhero and the word hidden in every image. They are also asked to write the word that they have found. It will take approx. 5 minutes to do each image, so that's 45 minutes worth of teaching if done all together! Be superhero inspired to improve handwriting. All guidance notes are provided. Just print out and use. Suitable to whole class, small groups and 1 to 1 sessions. Don't forget to follow me to discover what new resources I am creating. Thanks

Cursive Handwriting Worksheets for 7 -11 years: Mary Rose, KS1 & KS2

(0)
Needing to teach older children to write legible, fluent, clearly formed cursive letters? This resource combines teaching children about the Mary Rose Tudor ship with letter writing practice. They think they are learning about where the ship was built, hatch the sea dog, the sailors and the ships contents by drawing, completing quizzes, word searches and writing brief stories. They are in fact… developing their cursive 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: • Appropriate pencil grip • Correct posture and paper placement • 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 cursive 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. Every page naturally progresses the skill of writing. It starts with how to sit and hold a pencil, progressing to drawing letter groups, tracing words, copying words, reducing letter size, creating sentences and ending with story writing. There is also a thesaurus maker for those children who repeatedly use the same word in every story. The best bit is that they have no idea how much this resource is improving their handwriting as they are interested in learning more about the Mary Rose Tudor ship and Henry VIII. I use it and I know it works. You do not need to think of anything as it has been done for you! Just print out and use. There are 30 pages of worksheets and guidance notes. Suitable to whole class, small groups and 1 to 1 sessions. **************** Read how I use this product everyday by going to http://www.enablememethod.com/blog/ **************** Terms of Use Copyright © Enable Me Method.

This is a great Easter resource to help develop handwriting skills. It is a visual game where the children have to match, spot the difference, complete the mazes, find the extra images in a picture and many more.

They work on areas called spatial relationships, form constancy, figure ground, visual closure, visual memory, sequential memory and visual discrimination. By noticing differences in a picture it will help them look out for the difference in letter formations e.g. the difference between writing l or t. They have been produced in colour but to save printing costs they can be printed in black and white. There are 10 in total and each sheet will take less than 5 minutes to complete., giving you approximately 40-45 minutes worth of activities.
