these are brilliant for pre-school and infants to practise their writing on. I used them with my 6 and 8 yr olds and they improved very quickly!
You can write your own text or just type in Aa Bb Cc etc etc or use numbers.

I bought some tracing paper for my boys to use over the sheet and it saved printing loads out.

Do these follow the preschool guidelines? I taught our four year old how to write his alphabet and a few words, and then had to reteach him as we hadn't added "flicks" to the letters (ready for joining up the letters)

Thanks for the link though Looks handy

Use the cursive sheet for school writing

They do the "flick" thing in my sons class at the moment ( he is 6!) and to be honest I would rather they actually concentrate on the letter shapes, sounds and connect to phonics than teaching him how to write "joined up" as he calls it!
There is a sheet on the downoad that works well with this.

hth:)

I think all schools have to teach cursive (flicks) writing from reception now. Trouble is it makes it hard to learn if they do not know how to do the letter shape first

Schools should focus on spelling, not bleedin flicks. I would prefer we could read our childrens handwriting rather than illegible joined up words

Thank You!!!!

It looks as if I'm the odd one out here, but I think it's a good thing to start learning to add a flick, my son is learning to write and automatically adds it, I'd hate for him to have learnt to write and THEN have to learn to add a flick later on, he's just used to it now and he's in Reception.

yes lots of schools insist the children learn to write in the cursive script! My daughter is in reception and finds it vey confusing reading PRINT and writing cursive. The recognition is difficult too!

For writing sheets, printable flash cards, high frequency words, cvc sheets, and more try sparklebox. My friend is a primary teacher and put me onto this! She uses it alot for resources.

lol i blame my dodgy keyboard :P

EXCELLENT FIND !!! Make your own words as well....:thumbsup:

these seem like a good idea. thankyou. I agree with the previous post. good spelling & grammar should be important as well.
I saw my 9 year old daughter doing maths homework & it looked like another language!! gone are the days of simple maths. everything seems to be done in columns & looks like a lot of messing about.

lol i dont believe i got some just for fun xD

I found this site last year its great.

Maybe I'm out of it here as I don't have young children, but what the hell are flicks??? I thought they didn't learn 'joined up' writing till at least 10!

Thank you, I am running out of addition worksheets for my 5 year old. The worksheet generator in the link is going to be very useful. At the moment she rushes through 30 two-digit addition for a quick chocolate:roll:
Have added rep:)

cheers :thumbsup:

Will have a look at these when I get home... had it in mind to look for something along these lines!

Thanks
