Letter Formation

In kindergarten we demonstrate and practice correct letter formation. Letter formation must become automatic so that students can concentrate on the content of their writing rather than having to use a lot of energy on how to write the letters. Practice is the best way to help letter formation become automatic. Please see the capital and lowercase letter formation chart below.


Handwriting Suggestions:

*Form each letter using top down and left to right motions.
*Begin each sentence with a capital. All other letters should be lowercase.
*Properly hold the pencil using “Go Fingers”.
*Sit up straight with your feet flat on the floor.
*Make practicing handwriting fun!
