Penpals for Handwriting Year 4 Practice Book
Author/s: Gill Budgell and Kate Ruttle
Penpals for Handwriting is a complete handwriting scheme for 3-11 year olds.
The Practice Books provide specific handwriting focused practice - either introducing or practising letters, joins or key concepts such as size and proportion.
They are designed to support independent practice in the classroom, following a whole-class teaching session. Each page corresponds to the units within the Teacher's Books and includes opportunities for: Finger and pencil tracing, writing letters or joins; Writing phrases or sentences; Pattern practice; Self-assessment check.
In Year 4, we move on from letter formation and joins to look at more technical aspects such as letter height and formation.
This Practice Book is designed for guided group work, once the initial handwriting focus has been illustrated using the Year 4 Penpals for Handwriting Interactive resource.
