3 Organization of the Resource Beginning Cursive, Modern Style (pages 10-69) Lowercase letters are presented first since this is what children most often find difficult and so they need extra practice. They are introduced by letter formation, progressing from simple to more complex, rather than alphabetically. Modern style capital letters follow the lowercase letters and each capital letter worksheet also includes more lowercase practice. You ll find letters on both sides of the page to encourage left-handed children. Each worksheet concludes with an extension activity, which can be done in class or at home. The activities will enhance fine motor skills, and further develop children s writing and language abilities. Handwriting cannot be mastered if a child isn t ready. To master handwriting, children should have practice sessions of 15 minutes a day from four to six times a week. When introducing a new letter, let children feel the letter shape by drawing the letter up in the air. Using a piece of string or yarn to shape the letters will assist children greatly to visualize the formation and continuity of cursive handwriting. Practice Cursive, Modern Style (pages ) The second part of the book focuses on both the uppercase and the lowercase modern style letters, providing practice with both in interesting and creative ways. On each page, children will practice writing the focus letter, a word associated with that letter, and then a sentence. Dolch sight words are included on each page. Dolch sight words are those most commonly encountered when reading, many of which either can t be sounded out or can t be illustrated. The use of these words reinforces reading and writing skills. The complete list of Dolch sight words is included in this resource. The theme of the page is continued in a meaningful writing exercise that generates interest and further develops critical thinking and language skills. The activities are designed to be interactive and relevant to children s lives. At the end of the book, children are encouraged to put their accumulated skills to the test by writing postcards to the sailors that have been with them throughout; these may be used as an assessment tool, along with the rubrics found on page 5. Our crew of sailors give out the instructions, so children can also use this book at home with their parents; together they can follow the instructions. The child can begin at the starting point and off on a journey they ll go! Always encourage children to do their best and avoid reprimanding a child for messy writing. Children will experience the greatest success with handwriting if they enjoy the learning process and want to foster their own skills. Happy sailing happy writing!

4 Dolch Sight Word Lists Edward Dolch created a list of words that are used frequently, and must be learned by sight. He organized his listing into categories that match grade levels. It is a consensus that all of the words in all the categories be learned during the first grade. Dolch words have been used in each of the exercises in this book. Pre-primer a, and, away, big, blue, can, come, down, find, for, funny, go, help, here, I, in, is, it, jump, little, look, make, me, my, not, one, play, red, run, said, see, the, three, to, two, up, we, where, yellow, you Primer all, am, are, at, ate, be, black, brown, but, came, did, do, eat, four, get, good, have, he, into, like, must, new, no, now, on, our, out, please, pretty, ran, ride, saw, say, she, so, soon, that, there, they, this, too, under, want, was, well, went, what, white, who, will, with, yes 1st Grade after, again, an, any, as, ask, by, could, every, fly, from, give, giving, had, has, her, him, his, how, just, know, let, live, may, of, old, once, open, over, put, round, some, stop, take, thank, them, then, think, walk, were, when 2nd Grade always, around, because, been, before, best, both, buy, call, cold, does, don t, fast, first, five, found, gave, goes, green, its, made, many, off, or, pull, read, right, sing, sit, sleep, tell, their, these, those, upon, us, use, very, wash, which, why, wish, work, would, write, your 3rd Grade about, better, bring, carry, clean, cut, done, draw, drink, eight, fall, far, full, got, grow, hold, hot, hurt, if, keep, kind, laugh, light, long, much, myself, never, only, own, pick, seven, shall, show, six, small, start, ten, today, together, try, warm Nouns apple, baby, back, ball, bear, bed, bell, bird, birthday, boat, box, boy, bread, brother, cake, car, cat, chair, chicken, children, Christmas, coat, corn, cow, day, dog, doll, door, duck, egg, eye, farm, farmer, father, feet, fire, fish, floor, flower, game, garden, girl, good-bye, grass, ground, hand, head, hill, home, horse, house, kitty, leg, letter, man, men, milk, money, morning, mother, name, nest, night, paper, party, picture, pig, rabbit, rain, ring, robin, Santa Claus, school, seed, sheep, shoe, sister, snow, song, squirrel, stick, street, sun, table, thing, time, top, toy, tree, watch, water, way, wind, window, wood On The Mark Press S&S Learning Materials 9 OTM-1858 SSR1-58 Beginning and Practice Cursive

6 Beginning and Practice Cursive Name: Pre-Writing Practice When we write lowercase cursive letters we need to make a connection between the letters. We make a tail or a hook before and after each letter to make an easy connection. Think of a parade of elephants hanging onto the tail of the elephant before them. Practice drawing the curves up and down and the loops up and down. Make the little hooks and tails. Bonita b Î s ŠËÒѱ fšëâý Extension Activity: Doodle: Take a pencil to any paper and draw squiggles, curves, lines frontward and backward, slants, and curls. Try not to think about what you re doodling, just let your hand feel the motion. Doodle big and doodle small.
