Do you have children interested in space? 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 cursive alphabet • Write words related to the letter being copied. For example the worksheet for the letter C asks a child to write the words cluster, comet and constellation. • Each word has an explanation next to it. For example the worksheet for the letter A has the word astronaut. It explains this is a person who travels in space and that in Russia they are called cosmonauts. This is great for those children who have an inquisitive mind. 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 cursive writing skills. 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: • How to sit when writing, hold a pencil and angle the paper • Letter formations and joins • 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 about Space. 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 35 pages of worksheets and guidance notes.

Give them these worksheets and help them start their handwriting journey with ease and enjoyment. Pencil control skills can also be called pencil tracking skills.

This resource is the last stage of pencil tracking skills and it is called ‘Pencil control - triangles and diamond shapes’.

This is a workbook for children aged between 3 to 5 years asking them to demonstrate basic pencil-control skills using triangles and diamond shapes. They will also learn how to draw around triangle shapes such as crisps and sandwiches. Learn to draw around diamond shapes like a diamond ring and a playing card.

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.

Crack the letter puzzles

(0)
Are your students ready to crack the letter puzzles? Every page lets a child use their imagination to create words from 9 letters. By writing these words it will give a child an opportunity to practice word writing. Finally they should pick up to three words to turn into a sentence. Due to the nature of the words found it may not be possible to write a sentence that does not sound silly. It is acceptable in this situation to write a silly sentence. For example with the puzzle ‘noaellsta’ following sentence could be written: Least not eat meat drink tea. To make it more difficult to complete you can ask the child to write as many words as they can within 5 minutes. The answer sheets provide every word combination possible meaning you do not have to think of the answers.

Each one is designed to capture a child’s imagination making them want to search the internet to discover the answer. For example: Who invented the internet? Who invented fibre-optics? Who invented milkshake? The way that I use these sheets is for the child to choose an invention to search on the internet. They then chose one of the five template page.
