Channie's My First Letters
Because legible handwriting remains an essential skill necessary for communication, give your PreK student a valuable edge with My First Letters. This uncomplicated method of handwriting is based on repetition in the form of tracing. There are three pages of practice devoted to each letter. First, there are pages each for tracing the capital and lowercase letters. Then, after working to develop muscle memory for that letter, the third page is for practicing the letter without tracing. An instructional example starts each page, so there is no guessing as to how to form the letter.

There are pictures to color, and the same image is used for both the upper and lowercase letters to solidify that even though they look different, they are the same letter. The pages are fall-out-easy to remove, nice and thick, easy to erase if necessary, and the spaces are very generous and wide. Also included is practice for numbers 1-9. 80 pages.

This is a good starter

This is not fancy. It’s basic and to the point. I feel like it does an excellent job breaking down how to write letters in an easy, concise way. My 4 year old does well with it and only requires me to get him started on the first 1 or 2 letters.

This book works. It's easy, it's simple. I would have my kids do only one side of a page per day and they didn't mind it so much. It's great to have things like this that they can do by themselves at such a young age.

Not for us

My 4yo did not like this workbook. He would groan and complain when I'd put it in front of him. We went with Handwriting Without Tears instead.

I liked it, my 5-year-old didn't! Don't let that deter you though!

I was glad to have this book as part of the Kindergarten curriculum for my 5-year-old; however, he did not make it through the book. We had done similar books and writing practices in the past, so I think it was just too boring for him. We stopped using it regularly pretty early in the school year, but did come back to it if we noticed him incorrectly writing letters with other language arts activities. If this is an introduction to writing for your child, I think it would work well. I will be using pages from it for my 3 year-old.

Great and Basic

Sometimes the basics are the best. Simply to practice letters. My 3 yo loves tracing all of the letters and practice.
