Do you have students who are not able to write their names yet? Or perhaps you have students who are learning bad habits for letter formation if they are not developmentally ready to write letters. The Weekly and Daily Sign In Sheets for Early Writers solves these problems by having students sign in by completing developmentally appropriate pre-writing skills.

The Weekly and Daily Sign In Sheets for Early Writers moves students through a progression of visual motor skills. When signing into the class or during morning work, students can practice writing vertical lines, horizontal lines, curved lines, diagonal lines, and shapes instead of focusing on letter formation. This helps students solidify early writing skills before having to write letters.
How to Use the Weekly and Daily Sign In Sheets for Early Writers:
Decided if you want to provide multiple practice trials each day (daily sign-in sheet) or one trial practice per day of the week (weekly sign-in sheets).
Print the sign in sheet and an adult writes the child’s name on the paper and the date (week or day).
Each day of the week, the student signs in by completing the visual motor section on the worksheet. For example, on Monday, a student who is working on horizontal lines would sign in by starting at the GO dot on Monday and ending at the STOP sign. The next day the student would repeat the sign in under the Tuesday section.
For the daily practice, the student completes 5 pre-writing practice sections each day.
