What are Handwriting Letter Boxes?

Handwriting letter boxes help students learn how to form the correct size of the letters and where the letters belong on the line. They always help with letter spacing so students learn how far apart to space their letters.

Some handwriting letter boxes have start dots in them as well to help students know where to start writing the letters.

Benefits of Playing Handwriting Games

In order for handwriting skills to improve, research indicates that students have to practice for at least 20 sessions! Wow, that is a lot of handwriting practice. This can be especially difficult for students who struggle with handwriting.
