Handwriting and Creative Writing


*Handwriting
Students are expected to write the lowercase and capital letters correctly.

Students are also expected to be able to write their first and last name correctly (without looking at their nametag). Only the first letter of the first and last name should have a capital.

We will practice holding our pencils correctly and forming the letters correctly in kindergarten. We will also focus on using the three lines (top, middle, and bottom). Students should be starting their letters from the top or middle lines and going down, not starting at the bottom and going up.


*Writing

Students will be writing sentences in kindergarten. We start slowly by first writing sentences together as a class. Then we move on to writing one or two sentences together. From there students will write one or two sentences on their own. They will be creating sentences daily in the writing journal.
