HANDWRITING GROUPS AT DTC 2013
CURSIVE LEVEL 1 “Getting to Grips with Writing”
Criteria for suitability
• Age range: 6 – 8/9 yrs
• Beginning to or using cursive script in school
• Most letters of alphabet formed correctly
This is both an entry-level course and a consolidation course for cursive writing. The course follows a structured progression but there is room for some flexibility as groups are small (maximum 8/9). The course provides a solid foundation for cursive writing through clear instruction with visual support and practice.
Specifically the course teaches and consolidates formation of “cadgq” “s” and “k”; teaches and practices joining to and from these letters and integrating these letter joins into words. However there is some incidental learning as well.
Homework is given for further practice and consolidation. Parents are invited to attend one of the sessions in its entirety so they can learn how to help their child in home setting. A short summary of work done is written for school.
Following this course some students are able to generalise skills acquired above into school and go on independently to other letters and letter combinations. Some of the younger students or students with specific writing difficulties benefit and need to repeat the course 1-2 times.
Students can them move on Writing Improvers – see below
CURSIVE LEVEL 2 “Writing Improvers”
Criteria for suitability
• Age range: 8/9 – 11/12 yrs
• Using cursive script in school
• Letter formation pretty much consolidated -odd letter not formed correctly
This 3-day course aims to integrate good pencil control technique, posture and grip into cursive writing. It is a fun course and many students (though not all) have attended Level 1 above. Work covered includes working on fine pencil control (especially vertical and diagonal up / down), word searches (left to right), writing sentences from memory and writing story using thinking skills work sheets.
We have a variety of work sheets so students can attend several times.
