Handwriting lessons include copywork, dictation and simple sentence construction.

Do I Need To Start At The Beginning?
The 96 lessons in this resource provide the material that is required for Year 4 study when following the Australian Curriculum. If you have already covered some Year 4 material in a previous resource it is appropriate to slot yourself into the correct week in our four term schedule. Lessons are not dependent on each other so this would work in most circumstances.
Is this enough?
Reading practice is still needed to increase your child’s fluency so keep giving your child other books to read.
Daily copywork can also be added for extra handwriting practice.
I suggest for Year 4:
