Handwriting Blitz Take 2

19 Mar

Last week I tried practicing our handwriting with 90 second fun activities (read about it here).

They were such a hit that I tried it again with 6 different activities.

I set up 6 activities to practice writing the letter ‘s’.  The students spent 90 seconds at each activity and then moved on to the next one.

This week’s 6 activities were:

Activity 1. Marble writing at the easel.


Activity 2. Writing using cotton tips and water paint.


Activity 3. Masking tape on the floor and using a toy car to trace the letter.


Activity 4. Writing under the table.


Activity 5.  Writing on paper using a crayon but with sand paper underneath.


Activity 6. Writing in sand on top of a mirror.


There you go…………another 6 fun and engaging handwriting activities (well as engaging as handwriting can be!!).

      I’m in QLD – I have a Prep/Year 1. I think Prep in QLD and Kinder in NSW are the same??

    Awesome ideas. My sons class used a cutting wheel thing to trace their names. Another idea is black paint over coloured paper and then use something to scratch through to show the colour.

    Great ideas, what a fun teacher you are! I might have to do this to get my daughter to practise her e’s, she does them in SUCH a long-winded way.

    They’re lucky to have you for a teacher, sharing such fun things to help them learn.

    Such clever ideas … I think kids love learning when it’s less formal, creative and fun.
