Let's Learn To PrintLet’s Learn To Print is a great resource on teaching users how to write. Learning how to print is a major accomplishment for young users.

Don’t worry Let’s Learn To Print can help with all of the struggles that come with learning how to print. Let’s Learn To Print presents handwriting in a developmental sequence and provides children with the opportunity of being able to visually identify the letters as well as learning how to print.

Other Handwriting Ideas from Let’s Learn To Print

  • Sand Trays
    Take a cookie sheet and cover the bottom with either sand or salt. Hand the user practice letters in the sand with their fingers. They will be able to feel how each letter is formed.
  • Mosaic Letters
    Gather fifty-two 4″ x 6″ index cards, glue, uncooked, beans, macaroni or seeds. Make 26 uppercase letters and 26 lower case letters by drawing one letter on each card. Trace over the letters with glue and then lay the beans, pasta or seeds on top of the glue. Let dry. When you have finished making the alphabet letters, they can be used for a variety of activities: letter identification, matching, or placing the cards in alphabetical order.
  • Clay or Play Dough Letters
    Prepare a set of alphabet cards ahead of time. Give the user play-dough or clay and teach them how to roll the clay so that is looks like a long worm. Have the children use the clay to form letters that correspond with the alphabet cards.
  • Glue Letters
    Give the user a set of cards with one alphabet letter printed on each card. Let the user trace over the letters with white glue. Let the glue dry. Have the user use their index fingers to trace over the dried glue letters. This will allow them to feel how each letter is formed and to practice tracing the correct direction of each letter.
