Special days & holidays, handwriting games
What worksheets are here?
In this category you will be find many different ways to help improve writing that are all about keeping it fun. Based around special days, holidays and handwriting games these activities put the interest back into learning. For example, why not play a four in a row game or be creating a holiday to-do list.
Research supports teaching children handwriting in a variety of ways. Some studies have shown that by just ‘playing’ this can improve handwriting. As a result, we can be improving handwriting without even picking up a pencil.
Furthermore, to help you find the best resources for your child I have grouped handwriting skills into 4 levels. Here you will find a combination of ALL level worksheets.
*Lastly, we are all different, please use the age ranges as suggestions. Handwriting is about capturing a child’s imagination and interest. These activities will definitely be doing this.
