Each page of this printable packet focuses on one set of cursive letters.
- Letters are grouped according to formation, so teaching letters in groups leads to carryover of skill and handwriting success.
- Letters are categorized by the pencil strokes and fine motor movements needed for form each letter. Work developmentally to teach letters for accuracy!
- Set includes lower case letters and upper case letters, grouped by letter formation pencil strokes.
Learners can use these snowman spinners to work on cursive letter formation in a no-stress format. The printable worksheets include a gamification aspect. Which letter will “win” and get the most spins?!
Print off these pages and use them over and over again to work on grouped letter formation. Start with developmentally easier letters and work your way up to more complex letter forms.
How to Use These Cursive Writing Snowman Spinners
Print off a page according to the learner’s level and ability. Start with simple letter lines for new writers and work your way up to more complex cursive letter formations.
Then, use a paperclip to create a spinner. Simply hold a pencil straight up and down on the spinner and spin the paperclip. When it lands on a letter, the writer can form the cursive letter on the top of the page. Continue spinning until all of the blocks are filled. Then, the user can count the number of each letter and write the total number onto the chart at the bottom. What a fun game to work on writing cursive letters!
This packet includes cursive letters in uppercase format and lowercase format.
Each page includes a set of cursive letters that use similar pencil lines: spike lines, re-trace lines, bump letters, wave letters, etc. Upper case cursive letters are sorted by starting point to help with formation skills.
Breaking down letters by developmentally appropriate formation and sequential formation promotes carryover.
- Work on only the letters that use simpler lines, and then move onto more complex letters
- Build on letter formations and pencil strokes
- Celebrate wins! Pick out the “best” letter on the page. Give the letter a star and celebrate handwriting!
