Magic Shapes Handwriting & Fine Motor Skills: cursive letters: Fine motor and pen skills

Magic Shapes Handwriting & Fine Motor Skills: cursive letters: Fine motor and pen skills

EVERY letter of the alphabet in cursive. Uses fine motor skills and basic shape making as a foundation for forming letter shapes. Each letter has been broken down in to simple shapes that can be used to develop fine motor skills and build pencil confidence. Those same shapes can then be magically joined together to form letters. A full set of resources is included for EACH individual letter including powerpoints and practice sheets. ************************* Developed over thousands of years, these magic symbols are used by wizards to share thoughts, ideas and information. Expert wizards can create thousands of spells with just a few magic shapes. These wizards are called WRITERS and you can become one. There are two lessons for every letter: (resources are already organised into folders for your convenience) Lesson 1: Fine Motor Skills Shapes to develop fine motor skills and perfect the use of the magic pen. Includes: - examples and demonstrations on Powerpoint - Magic Pen Skills sheet with guidance and traceable shapes. Lesson 2: Learning the Letter Shape Combines the shapes in lesson 1 to form a magic symbol (the cursive letter). Includes: - guidance on Powerpoint with the handwritten version of the letter and examples of alternative ways it may be written in print and handwriting - Magic Letter Builder sheet with traceable forms of the shapes used in the fine motor skills activity and also combined to form the complete letter - Pen Wizard: Trace the letter at declining sizes to perfect magic writing skills - blank sheet for practising freestyle writing - flashcards with the complete letter and deconstructed shapes Note: Lesson 1 is designed to build confidence and familiarity of the shapes that have been deconstructed from the complete letters. Lesson 2 is best done after a short break or later in the day when children can then use the shapes they are familiar with from lesson 1 to form letters. The lettering is intended as an introduction to cursive writing with shapes that are similar to print. Examples of other versions of letter forms are included to help emphasise that children will see variations in books and with other people's handwriting.
