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 l, m, n and o. Below is the letter formation sheet with rhymes to help you.



Task 1: 

l, m, n and o

- 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.

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

Write out your spellings in one of the following ways: 

  • bubble letters
