This week, first-grade students learn to spell the following words: there, little, down, want, best, nest, rest, test, vest. Students are encouraged to read aloud all the words, then pick one word and write it three times. Students can write one sentence using this word.
Available styles and printing options:
Styles: Zaner-Bloser, Handwriting Without Tears (HWT), and D’Nealian.
Printing options: black lines.
Zaner-Bloser. Forming letters straight up and down. Guideline: blue headline, red baseline, and dotted midline. An easy step-by-step approach.
Handwriting Without Tears. Forming letters using simple strokes. Guideline: simplified. Modern handwriting.
D’Nealian. Forming letters in slight slant and adding little tails to each letter. Guideline: blue headline, red baseline, and dotted midline. Easier transition to cursive.
