Name Writing and Letter Formation
Letters are formed in a “top-down” formation; this type of writing can be used in any way: whiteboard, sidewalk chalk, blank paper, etc.
Look at the handouts below for verbal path and arrow letter formation examples.
Then have your child practice with the Rainbow Writing activity and their name.
Remember to use both upper and lower case letters!
