School-Rite Handwriting Instruction Guides feature 1” letters on an 8½ x 11” template. They include sample letters for identification, numbered stroke sequence and arrows showing proper stroke direction. Ruled lines illustrate correct letter proportion, spacing and placement. A sample word is included on each handwriting template, showing how letters can be combined to make words.
Manuscript templates are appropriate for children ages 4 to 7 years old. Transitional templates assist children in moving from manuscript to cursive handwriting. The recommended age level for our Transitional Handwriting Guide is 4 to 9 years. Cursive templates are designed for advanced handwriting instruction, generally ages 9 to 12. The Cursive Instruction Guides add stroke lead-ins and scroll features to the changed shape of the letter.View Products

A variety of templates are offered to teach basic learning skills. They are especially beneficial to learners who rely on the kinesthetic, or tactile, approach to learning. Activity templates include sample shapes for recognition and identification, and give directions for stroke movement. When finished, the child can remove the template and re-trace to develop fine motor skills. Adding color to the completed pictures further develops fine motor skills. Suggested activities are included with each template.View Products
