Preschool children love to learn to identify and write capital letters. Once they can TRACE and IMITATE simple lines they will LOVE learning to write CAPITAL letters. MRI brain studies show that these early letter-writing attempts strengthen letter recognition and reading. Pencils and pizzas are familiar objects that kids have fun tracing and will help them to learn to form lines and curves needed for all capital letters. These sheets will help them learn conventional letter formations and to acquire an essential life-long legibility skill of starting their letters at the top!
If you are concerned about children switching to lowercase as they get older, rest easy. If children receive good explicit instruction for lowercase formations when they are developmentally ready, they naturally want to use more grown-up printing.
We start name writing experiences with capitals first, because preschool-aged children already understand lines and curves, Pencils are lines, and Pizzas are curves. Even 4-year-olds are ready to learn critical rules for lifelong legibility such as starting and the top, by touching the Go-dots and to go in the correct direction by following the arrow.
- Nice big, bold, clear letters for early learners. Like the gray boxes to help prevent reversals. Fits in well with HWT.
- Great graphics that fit nicely with the HWT curriculum.
- Perfect for using with some of my early childhood students.
