Handwriting Alphabet Copywork
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.
These alphabet printing copywork ebook have been developed to provide a language-arts resource that helps a child develop the pre-writing skills that lead to good handwriting.
We have 3 printing ebooks
- Blinky Bill Italics Printing (Foundation Font) – sample
