Thank you for posting on our Forum. There is no just one right way to teach handwriting. Please consider rereading the teacher’s guide. Our kindergarten-friendly approach to handwriting does not begin with practice a-z pages until children already have the basic handwriting motions internalized. Then the pages are used to review and assess. Often teachers begin that in December or January. (Though there is nothing wrong with starting them earlier.)
We begin with name writing and each child works on the individual letters of their name, the word love, and the power sentence “I love you.”
For a further visual clarification of how we use the resources included in Nellie Edge Online Seminar #2, please go to our website and peruse the handwriting page which contains a detailed photo essay of the handwriting process as we use and teach it. We have also written four blogs on kindergarten handwriting with another one coming out this week. Everything is on our website to support you.
