Description

Handwriting Alphabet Copywork

Handwriting Fonts

We have tried to make these copy books very easy to use. There is one letter per page which can be printed as single or multiple copies.  On each page the child can trace a letter and then practice copying it. The child can also colour in the illustration if they desire. We have also placed a few easy phonic or Dolche list words for children to practice writing and reading.

The letters of the alphabet have been  provided as a model of good handwriting. It  is not meant to be a handwriting course but rather an aid to teaching letter construction and recognition of letters.

The stories of Blinky Bill by Dorothy Wall are an Australian Classics. You may choose to read the story out loud to enhance the lessons.

  1. As an Australian educator, it is lovely for me to have these pages with illustrations from an Australian children’s classic, for American educators maybe this would be something refreshingly different. The fonts are clear and easy for a child to navigate the tracing as well as copying. Nicely done. Thankyou. Joanne T

  2. The pictures could have been better selected to go with the letters so that the kids understood the correlation between the letter and the picture. For example Bb and a picture of a ball. These pictures, while cute had NOTHING to do with the letters on the page, they could have been used in a different order to make more sense. Sarah K

  3. I originally got this for my niece, just turning 5yrs, my daughter wanted to help her with it. I couldn’t believe that my daughter was enjoying this so much. She loved the story, the art and being able to lead the copywork with her cousin. We haven’t tried copywork before, very new concept to us. This was our first introduction to copywork and we are doing so much more because of Blinky Bill, thank you. Carrie P

  4. I fell in love with the are on the cover of this E-book. The drawing are so cute and whimsical. They continue throughout the book and especially for my little artist are the favorite part of the book. I did find that the way the lines were set up for printing were quite confusing however. When my daughter opened the book to get started we both had trouble figuring out where she was supposed to actually write at. I would suggest the creator go back and make it a simple one basic line per row to practice on. If that were fixed I would give it a high recommendation. Kelly P

  7. I /love/ the Blinky Bill handwriting pages! They are just enough for a child who has trouble sitting still to handle. And there’s the added pleasure of a picture to color. This is a great resource for grades Pre-K-1. Melody K

  8. This is an excellent workbook for learning to write letters A-Z. My 4-year-old enjoyed the Blinky Bill pictures, and I liked that it had several opportunities to not only trace the letter, but also to practice independently. It also gives ample practice of writing lowercase letters, which is the majority of what we write. We will use this again as we practice our penmanship through Kindergarten as well. This is currently my favorite A-Z workbook for letter practice! Brandy F

  9. Copywork is a huge hit especially with coloring parts. My daughter still writes a few letters backwards this will be a great help! JJ R

  10. I like everything about this book except the lines. Lower case letters are to be printed between two solid lines instead if between a dotted line and a solid line. It seems a child could be easily confused going from these pages to more traditional handwriting paper with solid top and bottom lines and a dotted middle line. Karen B

  11. This is a cute and simple copybook. The actual storybook wasn’t as easy to find, but i did find it used. We have read many Thorton Burgess books and the story of Blinky Bill seems simliarily written to the Burgess -style books. It will nice to read something similiar, yet an Australian classic will be a little different. the copybook is a great addition to a cute story for my kids who are ages 4 and 5. Jennifer D
