Hi, it would be great if these were written on NSW handwriting lines when I choose NSW foundation font.

Is it possible to get resources for introducing exits and entries for NSW font. I teach Year 3 and it would be great to have posters and tracing pages showing this transition phase from no joins to joins.

I love this motor plan of the QLD Beginners Alphabet and would love to use it. The letters d, v and w is however missing the exit line. Is there a possibility to fix it?

Lynette Swart · Jan 7th, 2019


Hi Lynette,
If you select the QBeginners font from the School Font drop-down list at the top of the page, you will get the correct letters in your resource. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
