HANDWRITING PROGRAM SUPPORTS

Written by THRIVE Program Teacher, Tyson Schoeber • Last Updated: 06-05-2017

Here are some materials and notes that you may find helpful in teaching handwriting to your students — especially if you're using any of the free handwriting pages we've posted.

A CLASSROOM POSTER

This poster prints onto letter-sized paper (or cardstock) that can be easily trimmed with a paper cutter. It looks just great on a classroom wall!

LARGE-SIZED LETTERS

Kids who struggle with specific letters (or combinations of letters) may benefit from practicing bigger versions of those shapes. We put these pages into plastic page-protectors and use them during 1:1 conferences — guiding the student to learn the correct patterns by tracing the models with one (or two) fingers.

These pages print on standard, letter-size paper:

We've also created pages for every lowercase letter that print onto 11" x 17" paper. They're easily laminated and work great for use with large or small groups of students:

THE FONTS

In case you're curious, all of our handwriting materials were created with fonts developed and sold by Educational Fontware, Inc., a small business based in Wisconsin. In fact, they produced a THRIVE font that you can even purchase from them if you'd like to make up your own assignments or worksheets with it.
