Teacher’s Notes

 Introduction

 This book is designed to help children enjoy the writing process. Children will develop correct posture as well as correct positioning of the hand. In addition, they will become aware that writing can be done for various purposes.

The activities are structured to facilitate the following:

  • developing an awareness of left to right orientation in writing
  • opportunities to build hand muscles
  • development of visual discrimination
  • increased ability to follow instructions
  • line and spatial awareness

Common or lowercase letters are introduced based on the basic movements required as well as their use in high frequency words. The first set of capital or uppercase letters are introduced based on their similarity to their common or lowercase letter counterparts. The other capital letters are introduced based on specificities of line formation requirements. Concerning the terminologies used, teachers/parents should point out to children that uppercase letters and lowercase letters are the same as capital letters and common letters respectively. The latter terms are the ones mostly used in the book.

Seven Review Exercises are included in the middle of the book. When and how they are to be used is indicated at the bottom of the relevant pages. These exercises are on reusable dry-erase paper so students are provided with unlimited practice. Students should use an erasable dry-erase marker to complete the exercises. What is written can be erased using clean fabric or tissue paper.

There is opportunity for children to integrate real life experiences into their writing as the activities promote integration with students’ experiences with the printed word outside of the school environment.
