Product description for teachers and tutors

The Handwriting Practice books support literacy in schools by giving children practice in forming and joining letters, helping them to develop handwriting that is neat, fluent, legible and fast.

Fully compatible with any school handwriting scheme, Handwriting Practice works methodically through the different letters and joins, and features workbook style exercises for children to complete.

The simple format of the books makes them easily accessible, enabling all children to work independently - though support from an adult helper is always beneficial. FOCUS points at the foot of each page highlight key points for helpers to look out for.

Handwriting Practice 2 focuses on joining letters to form words, beginning with letters of a particular shape, those found in common combinations, and themed word practice. By the end of Handwriting Practice 2, children should be able to write fluently on lined paper. Children are supported by:

  • shaded lines to write over as they begin to practise joining letters
  • lines on which the base of each letter is to rest
  • use of guidelines indicating the height of small letters and the vertical stroke (which is gradually phased out )
  • real-life copying tasks which include writing instructions/a letter/a postcard.

My 6 year old daughter needs some extra work on her handwriting; she tends to be quite lazy with her writing and has already formed her own style which is fine but not appropriate for school! I like these books because there is ample opportunity to practice forming letters. The paper is of a nice quality, the exercises aren't too challenging and most importantly my daughter enjoys doing them. I'd recommend these books for anyone else who wants to give their child a helping hand at home.

My son is home educated and enjoys using this book for his handwriting practice. He does a half a page because small chunks make it easier for him now that he is moving on to joined-up writing. His handwriting is improving and he can see his progress for himself.

I bought this book to help my 5 year old son and daughter with their handwriting. They had started to bring home from school words they had to learn to read and write. We soon discovered that the children didn't know how to form some letters correctly, this book is perfect to help with this problem. The book is very well set out, easy to use and the children like working through it.

Great Product, I don't regret buying this book for my son. He is using it to help his hand writing and he's already made great improvements in his hand writing... especially useful at a very young age.
