We have been working on correct letter and number formation this year and our clipart now ready to be incorporated into your classroom! It applies the instructional methods developed by Handwriting without Tears. Your students will always “begin at the smiley face.” I’ve added directional arrows and numbers to help your little learners navigate each letter (and number). There is also a visual “Stop”.
You will find these Handwriting Helps on our 0-20 NUMBER SENSE ANCHOR CHARTS.
And on their matching NUMBERS 0-20 PLAY DOUGH MATS. This set includes play dough mats with correct number formation, ten frame, tally marks and number word for 0-10; and correct number formation, twenty frame, take away from 20, and number word for numbers 11-20.
Finally, I’ve updated our ALPHABET PLAY DOUGH MATS. They are filled with independent, hands-on learning! And are perfect to use with your Letter of the Week program. Your students will not only be working on their fine motor skills, they will also learn the correct letter formation of both uppercase and lowercase letters and their sounds. They will count (1-12) objects that begin with the target sound and exercise their creativity on every page.
I’ve added simple, visual directions to help your students use these sheets independently.
PS. Student Number Sense Cards are in the works! Similar to our Star Wars set; perfect for everyday use!
