Foreword My Handwriting Workbook provides teachers with a systematic approach to the instruction and practice of handwriting. It has been written in the belief that it is essential for all children to develop fluent, legible and attractive handwriting. This handwriting programme develops: muscular coordination; fine motor skills; a preferred writing hand; a comfortable and appropriate pencil grip; a comfortable and appropriate posture when writing; a positive attitude towards handwriting; an ability to complete patterns which develop the movement and process of handwriting; a visual memory of letter shapes and formations; a fluent, legible and attractive writing style; the ability to follow instructions; the correct movement associated with each letter or join; the correct technique for writing each letter or join; the correct formation of each letter or join; and flow and fluency in the writing of each letter or join.

Lower case pre-cursive letters have been grouped according to the direction in which the letter is formed. Cursive writing has been grouped according to how the letters join. Review pages have been included at regular intervals to allow teachers to assess each child’s handwriting.

Teachers Notes After completing this workbook, the child will be able to demonstrate:

• • • • • • •

correct posture; appropriate pencil grip; correct placement of workbook; the importance of maintaining pencils; i.e. length and sharpness; correct formation of pre-cursive lower and upper case letters and numbers; correct formation of cursive script; suitable speed and fluency; correct size and shape of letters; correct starting and exit points of letters; neat and legible handwriting; and correct use of dotted thirds.

Letters

This workbook explains letters as having a head, a body and a tail. Some letters only have a body, some have a head and body, some have a body and tail, while ‘f’ has all three components. Body letters:

Body and tail letters:

Head, body and tail:

It is essential that children develop good habits to ensure they are comfortable while handwriting.

The correct posture is illustrated.

The correct paper position for left- and right-handers is shown below.

left-hander

right-hander

The correct pencil grip for left- and right-handers is known as the ‘precision grip’ and is shown below.

The lower case pre-cursive letters in this workbook have been grouped according to the direction in which the letter is formed. These groupings are: Anticlockwise letters:

Objectives

left-hander

right-hander

Left-handedness Left-handed children not only use a different hand to write with, they need to position their workbook differently from other children and will need to form some capital letters differently from right-handed children. These capitals are shown below:

Clockwise letters:

Downstroke letters: Teachers should not attempt to change the child’s handedness for handwriting. A left-handed child is more than capable of developing a legible and fluent style of handwriting.

How to Use This Book Pages 4 – 55 of this workbook revise the correct formation of pre-cursive letters, numbers and number words. Each page is designed to take one lesson to complete. Children trace the first two patterns then complete the remainder using the starting points provided.

At the beginning of each lesson, demonstrate and discuss: • correct posture; • suitable pencil grip;

Children trace then copy the lower and upper case letter at the correct size on dotted thirds. Special attention should be paid to where the letter begins on the dotted thirds line.

• the importance of maintaining pencils; i.e. length and sharpness; • correct placement of workbook;

pl e

• the type of letter; e.g. a body letter; • the starting point of the lower case letter and how it is formed; • the starting point of the upper case letter and how it is formed; and

A word study approach has been included in this section. The words the children are asked to trace and copy use the focus letter as much as possible and contain many anticlockwise letters (in this case), to give further practice. The word study topic can be discussed and answers to the activity can be written on the board so children do not have to be concerned with the correct spelling. Alternatively, children can think of their own answers and check in personal dictionaries or ask for the spelling.

in g

Children are encouraged to revisit their work and answer the evaluation questions on the particular page.

Sa m

• the direction of the letter; e.g. clockwise.

Regular theme pages are included throughout this section to provide children with further opportunities to practise handwriting. These pages may take longer than one lesson to complete. Answers can be discussed where necessary and displayed.

ew

Pages 56 – 78 introduce the correct formation of cursive script using joins. Each page is designed to take one lesson to complete. Theme pages are included after all of the joins have been introduced to provide children with further opportunities to practise handwriting. These pages may take longer than one lesson to complete. Answers can be discussed where necessary and displayed.

At the beginning of each lesson, demonstrate and discuss: • how the join is formed;

• the importance of the starting point; and

Vi

• the use of the arrows as a guide when tracing the joins or words.

Children trace, copy and complete examples of the join in a variety of activities.

Children are encouraged to revisit their work and answer the evaluation question on the particular page.
