I posted earlier about our new and improved wipeable worksheets and realized that I didn’t tell y’all where I found the worksheets that we use.
Currently, Bean is focusing on his letters and all the worksheets that we use are free printables from various homeschool websites.
This set of worksheets is awesome because it offers a bunch of pre-writing practice that Bean can quickly and easily practice and perfect. It’s nice that each sheet has the same format and Bean can easily remember to “start at the smiley face.”
This site has awesome worksheets for each letter. The pages include both upper and lower case letters and I love that it wraps up with practicing an entire sentence with the selected sight word. My only complaint is that you have to download each letter individually and the whole alphabet isn’t available as one PDF.
Bean really likes these sheets because he gets to draw a picture of something he recognizes. So, even if he doesn’t recognize the letter he’s working on, he can tell me what he’s drawing. I like that these pages encourage him to practice a lot of different strokes on one page and it doesn’t seem repetitive to him.
These are the worksheets that I use when I want to introduce a new letter to Bean. It’s wonderful because it offers a lot of pre-writing practice before he even attempts to write the actual letter. He gets to get familiar with how different strokes are formed before needing to put it all together.
ESL Writing Wizard is awesome because it creates any writing practice you want and allows you to customize the font, size, line patterns and writing style. You can even create cursive writing practice pages. Just input your desired letter and phrase and print! Super simple and Bean loves that someone thought to make a special sheet with his whole name on it.
That’s it! Those are the worksheets that we use. There are a million different sets of handwriting practice but these are the ones that I felt were thoughtfully designed.
