Helicopter letters

This week we're working on lowercase 'helicopter' letters. We use this wonderful handwriting material called Hand Writing without Tears. I used to use it when I taught preschool and have found it excellent for Lola as her learning tool. Recently, with the practice of lower case letters we noticed that some of hers were in need of some mending. So we reached a milestone with the helicopter idea of a, d, and g. The progress she has made is wonderful. We practice on the chalkboard first. Then she has practice in her book and finally we give her some lined notebook paper to practice.

Here's before in the pink- the lower case g is very disconnected, then here after the lesson, very straight and g looking:) we'll work on the length of the tail later:)
