Handwriting worksheet tips >
  • Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.  
  • During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.
  • Find the letter O's: Have the children find all the letter O's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.
