This is an idea that comes from one of my interns this year, Tracy. She saw it in another classroom. I could not find anything about it online so I just had to make my own poster. When you begin teaching handwriting on the “lines” this is such a helpful visual for the children.
- Chicken letters are the smallest. They stand between the ground (bottom line) and the fence (dotted line).
- Giraffe letters are the tallest. They stand from the ground up to the sky. (top line)
- Monkey letters hang down below the ground. They always hang down like the monkey’s tail!
