This week in Honest Owls, we are practising using a pen for our handwriting to show off all the hard work we have been putting into our handwriting. Children who have shown that they can use the correct handwriting style consistently will receive a pen to use in their Literacy and Topic writing. I've already been very impressed!
Cursive alphabet strip- please practice writing uppercase and lowercase letters. Remember that all letters begin with their lead-in.
Left handed children may find handwriting very difficult. This image shows that the key is in turning the paper and making sure that the wrist and arm do not bend or hook. Finding the right angle is different for each child and so once they find it, practice is really important to make sure that they are comfortable and able to write confidently and clearly.
