This is a really great resource as students can not easily articulate what constitutes ‘neat’ handwriting. These visual non-examples make things quite obvious to them!

Julia Cornes

The letters are not all consistent and not sitting on the lines uniformly. This makes it confusing and very difficult to use with students. Can this be fixed please

Hi Julia, thank you for your comment. The letters that are not sitting on the lines correctly have been added as non-examples. Students are required to circle the examples that are correctly displayed. I’m hoping this clears up any confusion with this resource.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

On all the handwriting sheets (including the widget) has the letters/words not sitting on the bottom line?
I really want to be able to use this or one of the handwriting ones.
Is there please a way this can be fixed.
