    Can we please get these in A4 sized handwriting practise sheets (NSW Foundation font best for me, but with font selection icon probably best for everyone)? Kids trace over dotted letters in correct coloured section . Cheers

    I would really like to have just the background and guidelines with no letter on it. This would work well as a laminated practice resource for students to form their letters on, as it would match the letter that is being modelled on the IWB. Love the idea, thanks. Jess

    This is such a fantastic resource. Unfortunately though, I am unable to use this at my school as we use dotted thirds for our Year 1's. Is there any chance this could be added to this resource? Thanks, Talia.

      Hi there Talia. Victorian, South Australian and Tasmanian school fonts all use dotted thirds. These can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of this page. However, if you are in another state, there would not be dotted thirds on the existing school font set-ups. To do this, you will need to submit a resource request, which can be done via the following link: https://www.teachstarter.com/request-a-resource/

    I would also like a version the same as the sample where the writing sits on the solid line but cannot find it in any of the options. Thank you.

      Hello Heather! I hope I can help. Have you chosen WA Pre-cursive from the 'School Font' drop-down menu before clicking download? Try this and if you are still having issues, I'll try to help out as quickly as I can.

    Could you please make the example picture font/lines available to download. Currently there is no option to make it the same as the sample. Would really appreciate it :)

      No worries Katelyn. Happy to help!

    Hi Katelyn, Thank you for your kind message. Great suggestion about making the lines thicker! We have updated the file, so the resource now has thicker lines that are easier to see. Kind regards Jill

    These are wonderful! So creative but straight forward. The only improvement I would like is for the lines especially the bottom line (the one the letters sit on) to be a little thicker and easier to see. Thank you.
