Handwriting With Fundations

A few years ago my campus adopted a resource called Fundations. It is great for to use with your guided reading target group. They also have a handwriting resource that I use with the whole class.
The hand writing paper looks like this



When you teach the letters you have sky line letters (h), plane line letters (a), and worm line letters (j).

So Say I am teaching the lowercase letter h. I would say to students...Start on the sky line. Write a straight line down to the grass line then back up to the plane line curve and down to the grass line. ( While I am saying it I am also modeling it)

If you are interested in how to teach the other letters or in the paper leave me a comment with your email and I will email it to you. Still haven't figured out embedding documents. Sorry :-(

  11. I would love to get a copy of your Fundations' Writing Paper. I work with older kids and this would be a wonderful way to help them transition from Fundations in the lower grade to Gr. 3-5. Thanks - kdougherty@k12albemarle.org

    Is there a way I can send you a private email with my email address? I hear that email accounts can sometimes get hacked or spammed when you post them on forums. Thanks again!!!

  36. If you are one of those students who prefer to order a well-written essay online instead of doing it individually, I can suggest you using this writing company Evolution Writers ! Try using this service once and you will see how useful it can be for you!
