Sky/Grass/Earth Writing Lesson
We are going to learn how to form our letters the right way.
Students in class will learn to form the letters correctly on specified lined paper; provided. Practice will help improve their print significantly.
Give explanation for the paper provided. We will analyze the letters together. Show them which letters "live" in the grass only, sky and grass, and in the grass and earth.
Checking for Understanding
After forming a few letters on transparency, have students count how many live in each location
Have students make a list of the letters which "live" in each location.
Have students follow along on their papers, as we write the first three letters of each location. Walk around the room and monitor.
Students will achieve understanding of the formation and placement of the letters.
Re-teaching will be helpful.
Students will practice remaining letters for homework.
