This is a great resource! Just wondering if the QLD print version could have the dotted line between the two blue lines?

Hi Teachstarter Team, I love this resource and use it for my Year One class in Queensland. Is it possible to make this resource editable in the Studio so we can generate spelling lists etc using these lines? Thanks 🙂

I’m looking for handwriting lines with the background of dirt, grass and sky as a visual guide for where to put the ‘head’, ‘body’ and ‘tail’ of the letters. Does this exist or we only have the posters available?

Hi Katrina,

Thank you for your message. We don’t have anything like that I’m afraid, but it’s a great idea! Please feel free to request this resource via our request a resource function here: https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/

Kind regards
