Penpals for Handwriting Year 3 Teacher's Book (Spiral Bound)
Author/s: Gill Budgell and Kate Ruttle
This Teacher's Book provides teachers with clear guidance on how to consolidate the joins learnt in Year 2 and assist children to master more complicated joins. At this stage, children build on joining through a word with an understanding of break letters.
They are taught and practise some trickier joins e.g. joining from s, from r, and to and from f. The emphasis is on legibility, consistency (e.g. parallel ascenders and descenders) and fluency, both in discrete handwriting lessons and in their independent writing.
