Letter formation skills

What worksheets are here?

In this category you will be finding multiple handwriting worksheets of varying styles. Everyone is designed to help your child write the individual letters of the alphabet.

There is three handwriting styles: printed, joined up and cursive.

Sometimes the joined up style cane known as ‘pre-cursive’. Making things even more confusing. Cursive handwriting can also be called ‘continuous cursive’. In this instance, I will be referring to it only as ‘cursive’ handwriting.

What style is your child using?

To begin with, looking at the writing below, try to find the one your child is using. Your child’s school may already have told you its name. Once that handwriting style has been found. Next, choose the worksheets for your child matching this style.

The three main styles look like this: joined up writing.

These activities are suitable for kids who can control their pencil, are trying to learn how to write individual letters. Alternatively they can write words, sentences and paragraphs but are needing a refresher on how to form certain letters.
