    Hi could you please use darker ink with the letters on the handwriting pages. Many of my children find the letters hard to see. Thank you

    Can you please make this resource where the letters are sitting on the solid line? I am needing to use SA font, however can not use this resource as the letters are sitting on the dotted line, which is not how we teach handwriting. Can you please change it so I do not have to use the widget to make each individual one myself? Thank you in advance!

      Hi Domini, We would love your input regarding font lines in SA! We are wanting to know the exact lines that teachers in SA use so we can make/update resources accordingly. Could you please submit a change suggestion to this resource using the Changes & Updates tab above the comments section? Please state the lines that you use in order from top to bottom, e.g. dotted, dotted, solid, dotted (in this case the letters will sit on the solid line). Thanks again!

    Would you be able to create this booklet with QR codes on each page that link to your handwriting Youtube videos?

    Hi there, are you able to do the NSW Foundation Print with the plain lines like those on default/comic sans?

    Would you be able to add the SA Pre-cursive font but with the letters sitting on the solid line like WA does? I have never seen dotted thirds used with letters sitting on the dotted line

    Victorian students sit their letters on the solid line however this is not the case on this worksheet. Can this please be changed so it can be used for Victorian students. The lines are correct on your "Alphabet Handwriting Sheets - Individual" Victorian sheets. Makes it extra difficult to use when the two Victorian handwriting sheets are different. It is very confusing for my students. Could the lower case b, k, p, x and z also be changed to Victorian cursive print as it is in the "Alphabet Handwriting Sheets - Individual". Thank you. I am looking to use these as part of remote learning packs.

    The letters in this document in the NSW font are not sitting on the solid line. The letters are sitting up in the dotted thirds. Could this be fixed please as I would like to use this resource with my students.

      Hi Lorraine, Thank you for getting in touch. The state fonts are generated on the lines to which they correspond (according to each state). Please feel free to request a resource at our 'Request a Resource' page. https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/ This will allow other teachers who use the same combination of fonts and lines to vote on your request. In the meantime, you can create your own handwriting worksheets using our Handwriting Sheet Widget here: https://www.teachstarter.com/au/widget/handwriting-sheet/ To set the lines for WA use the following settings: First and fourth lines – Dashed (blue) Second line – Dashed (blue) Third line – Solid (blue) If there is anything else I can help you with, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

    Hi, is it possible to change the lines around with the dotted lines top and bottom and solid (guidelines) in the middle?

      Hi Vanessa, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, on resources such as these, the fonts can only be generated on the lines to which they correspond (according to each state). However, you can create your own handwriting worksheets using our 'Create Your Own Handwriting Sheets' widget - this allows you to choose your own fonts and lines (allowing you to mix and match if you choose to do so!)

    I agree, if we could have this resource available in this format it would be fantastic!

    In Western Australia, we write on the solid blue line at the bottom of the dotted thirds. Is there any way you can customise is so we can choose the placement of the letters? Many school in WA don't use WA font, we use NSW font. Thanks, Vanessa

      Hi Sharyn, Thank you for your comment. We are pleased to hear your students enjoy using this resource. Kind regards, Victoria.

    This would be great if it was actually usable. Needs to be in foundation font or it is useless as a school/pre-school resource.

      Hi Joanna, I have some great news. You may have already seen this, however, we have now added school fonts for you to use with this resource!

    • Scott (Teach Starter)

      Hi Joanna, thank you for your comment. This is a fine motor activity. Activities like this help students to hone and develop their visual motor integration; the ability to control hand movement guided by vision. Along with letters, you will notice that we have also included pictures to trace. The added benefit of this activity is the exposure to different letterforms (outside of school fonts, such as Foundation), thus helping students to recognise different letters. While school fonts are an important part of developing students' writing skills, in reality, school fonts are not used outside of the classroom (or in many books within the classroom). This places a greater emphasis on being able to identify a wider range of letterforms. I hope this helps to explain why we have selected a more generic font for this resource. If you would like this resource amended, please feel free to submit a change request by clicking on the 'Changes & Updates' tab above. Requests are voted on by the Teach Starter community. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I'm happy to help! Kind regards, Scott
