Begin the journey with a bang
Students begin their Writing Time journey with Hero Lines – a unique, contextual code that represents the most common handwriting shapes.
Not only do Hero Lines help students decode and write letters, the related Hero Line songs get students moving, singing and practising their gross motor skills before they dive into fine motor skill activities.
With a double-page spread for every letter, students have ample opportunity to track, trace, copy and write the letters and shapes needed to kickstart their handwriting journey.
Unearth the secrets to handwriting development
Students will love the engaging adventure-based themes in each book, whether they’re exploring a fantasy land, diving into an underwater world, or trekking through dense jungle.
Poems, crosswords, diagrams and a number of additional activity types are used to ensure students have fun as they move from consolidating letter formation to learning exits, entries and joins. And of course students love turning the full-page fine motor activities into their own beautiful works of art.
Continue the adventure with style and speed
Handwriting skill development shouldn’t end in the early years. The Writing Time adventure continues through to Year 6, where students focus on speed, legibility and developing their own style.
The Student Practice Books also include activities with cross-curriculum themes in English, science, maths and history. There are also reflection banners and more intricate fine motor art exercises to keep upper years students engaged.
From fine motor artwork to assessment tools and online resources, there are plenty of hidden gems to uncover on your Writing Time adventure.
Beautiful, full-page art activities get little hands moving as they trace fluency patterns to complete their own works of art. These pages are carefully designed to include the slants, slopes and loops needed to develop letter formation skills.
At the back of the Student Practice Books, there’s a dedicated summative assessment section. This section gives students an opportunity to demonstrate the key handwriting skills learned throughout the year. It also provides the perfect sample of work to pass on to their next teacher, or to show parents.
Writing Time Online perfectly complements the Student Practice Books with a treasure trove of extra resources. Access includes printable worksheets for extra practice, catchy Hero Lines songs, the interactive See & Trace tool, assessment resources and more.
