Most importantly, recognising letters and form letters is an important skill for pupils to develop in early childhood. The letter writing activity teaches the pupils to read and write letters. But also it improves their ability to concentrate, retain information and through verbal discussion will aid creativity.

The tracker typeface

Each page of the workbook is designed using the tracker and dotted typeface. Which, helps to increase the levels of writing confidence. The tracker typeface is an outlined letterform and many benefits. Also, the direction arrow helps the pupil to start in the correct place. Furthermore, the pupil can go over the numbers more than once and refining the motor movements by keeping inside the outline. Moreover, they can track the numbers using coloured pencils to make practising the number formation a fun thing to do.

The dotted B typeface

Dotted B is used to refine motor movement. With its direction arrow reminding pupils where to start. Moreover, the pupils’ focus improves as they trace closely over the dotted letters.

The importance of developing good writing skills

Dr Rosemary Sassoon stated that once children are able to write their own names, they will need to learn the correct movement of each number. Also, they need to know the letter of the English alphabet. This is because if failed, the wrong movement will become a habit. If it becomes a habit it will be more difficult to change.
