Hi, I have just noticed the strokes that are listed on this poster for the uppercase Y. Could you please check this out as I don’t believe it is correct. I believe the strokes are the same as the stroke number/order for the NSW font. Thanks

I was wondering if you could make this resource available in the QLD pre-cursive font please?

Kate Condon 路 Mar 20th, 2018

Hello Kate,
Unfortunately, QLD pre-cursive font does not come with the guide arrows that you can see in this resource. It is assumed that once students have learned QLD print (QBeginners) that they should know how to form their letters. If you wanted a sheet with QLD pre-cursive, can I point you to this fantastic resource where you can create your own handwriting worksheets in all state fonts, including QLD pre-cursive:
If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to have these resource made with different lines? Thanks 馃檪

Kiri 路 Jan 30th, 2018

Hi Kiri,
I’d be happy to try and accommodate you, could you tell me what lines you would like for the resource?

Kristian 路 Jan 30th, 2018

Hi Kiri,
Happy to say your request has been sent to you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is anything else you need assistance with.

would love to see a handwriting chart with white lettering. this will allow us to laminate the sheets and enable the children the write on it following the arrows.

Hi Robyn,

We have a version of this resource that has lighter letters that can be traced over. You can download it here now: https://www.teachstarter.com/teaching-resource/writing-alphabet-chart-tracing/

Kind regards

Jill (Teach Starter) 路 Jan 8th, 2017

Hi. I was wondering if it is possible to have the lines that the students trace over in a lighter colour or dotted? That way when the cards are laminated it is easier to see where they have traced. Thanks

lspen32 路 Aug 25th, 2014

Hi Lissa, great idea! We鈥檝e made a note of it and will let you know when we’ve added the traceable version. Kind regards, Scott
