These packets are specficially designed for very beginning writers, with wide lines and lots of tracing.
They help students practice printing by having students practice upper case and lower case letters, common words that start with each letter, and sight words that start with each letter. We chose sight words from sight word lists 1 and 2 (occasionally choosing one or two sight words from harder lists if there are not enough sight words in the first two lists that begin with the letter being practiced (and for rare letters, like x, we choose common words and sight words that contain the letter).
Lines (including center-dotted lines) are included to help students write letters correctly (and at the correct height). Each set of words begins with gray words that students can trace, two lines of dotted words that for additional tracing practice, and then one line where students can start writing the letters on their own.
In each packet: Page 1 (shown above) is for practicing upper and lower case letters. Page 2 (show above) is for writing common words that begin with the letter (represented by a picture). Pages 3 and 4 focus on sight words that begin with the letter. (Each packet contains these pages for both letters.)
These packets are designed for very early writers. For students with more pencil control, who need more independent writing practice and less tracing, try our printing packets (which are designed for advanced pre-school and kindergarten students).
