There are two specific sections to this book - the prewriting and the letter writing stages! Both of these sections provide a full year's worth of activities for the first year of school - whether this is Foundation, Kindergarten or Prep!

Handwriting is a surprisingly important skill. Research shows that handwriting has a remarkably strong relationship with the ability of young children to write high quality text.

LINK Handwriting is a new evidence-based approach to developing handwriting skills in the early years of schooling.

Research shows that the key to developing proficiency in handwriting is to introduce the letter shapes to children using large fluid movements. Traditional approaches that introduce handwriting using two or four ruled lines and that focus disciplined pencil control have a negative impact on children's achievement in written language.

Based on current research, Beginner's Handwriting introduces the letters using large bubble shapes. This is followed by encouraging children to write letters on a single line.

The Year 1 book develops children's skills in handwriting, first by encouraging fluency in letter formation on a single line. When children have mastered the shape of the letters, they are provided with two parallel lines in which to refine their ability to produce letters shapes correctly.
