This year handwriting will be a major throughline of literacy. The aim is to increase each student's fluency (speed) and legibility. The development of an individual style and flourished capitals will also be a focus later in the program. The initial and primary focus will be on correct letter formation, directionality (orientation) and uniform slope. Each student has received a ten to fifteen minute individualised assessment and instructional session with me to pinpoint their needs and their focii fo the term. The sheet below contains twenty-six basic lessons which students will be working through at their own speed. Each student has been given a handwriting book to work in.
