LO: To practise my handwriting.

Today you are going to show off your wonderful handwriting skills. The letters you are going to practise today are h, i, j and k. Below is a handy letter formation sheet with  rhymes to help you.


Task 1: 

h, i, j and k

- choose one or more of the following ideas:

  • Use your pointing finger as a pencil and practise the motion of the letters and the joins : in the air, on the ground, on a wall or on someone's back.
  • If you have chalk, why not write your letters on the ground outside?
  • Or if you are lucky enough to have a sandpit write your letters in the sand.
  • Another option is to use a paint brush and water to write your letters on a fence or the ground.

We'd love to see your work on Seesaw!


If it helps you can say the rhyme as you sweep your finger to form the letter. 

Task 2: 

Make sure you are sitting in the correct postion to do your handwriting. Here is a handy rhyme to help you check: 

1 2 3 4,  are my feet flat on the floor? 

5 6 7 8,  my chair is in, my back is straight, 

9 10 11 12, this is how my pencil's held.

Write out your spellings in one of the following ways: 

  • bubble letters
  • fancy letters (curly, dotted, zigzag, wiggly - you choose!)
  • rainbow letters ( each letter a different colour) 
  • 'write' your words by cutting out letters from magazines/newspapers and glue your letters onto a piece of paper to spell the words.
