Children appear less likely to confuse visually similar letters if they have learned one letter of a configurable pair well prior to introduction of the other letter of the pair. In addition, it can be helpful to teach children to form configurable letters differently; for example, b starts at the top whereas d starts with the loop. Use written arrow cues to help children remember how to form letters.
Clean, simple and intuitive approach to workbooks invites rationalization and creativity and fosters handwriting success. Lefty-friendly with large step-by-step models. Double lines and line generalization activities promote legible writing. When children know how to place letters, they can write well on any style of lined paper.
For instance, while children are practicing writing a given letter, they can also be saying the sound the letter makes. In teaching cursive, explicitly teach connections between letters as well as formation of single letters. Unlike manuscript writing, cursive writing involves making connections between letters within a word. Once children can form individual letters, explicit teaching of letter connections is important.
