The Preschool Corner: Handwriting without Tears

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy .

I’ve started out using Handwriting Without Tears style worksheets with Zachary this school year. I made these several years ago when teaching my oldest handwriting.

This week Zachary wanted to choose the letters to work on : L, T, and O. In addition to using the worksheets, we also practiced writing on the dry erase board and the chalkboard.

Zachary’s cutting skills are fairly non-existent (because he would most likely find other uses for scissors – ahem), so we did practicing cutting. We also hung up some of the basic shapes in our dining room to practice their names.

Zachary has also been trying to sound out words – little by little, it’s getting there!! And since Mommy has huge boxes of books to share, we also read a fun science book together each day.

Here are the documents I made to use with Zachary for handwriting practice. Click on the thumbnail to download the worksheets.

Be sure to check back weekly for other Preschool Corner posts and worksheets to use with your preschooler. This year we are focusing on alphabet activities, so stay tuned!

    Look on the Internet for “handwriting without tears curriculum” basically the children use a rectangle chalkboard/slate to start letter formation then progress to writing their letters in these grey boxes.
