Free Read Write Ink Font

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a secondary ICT teacher and now a parent of a 3 and 4 year old.

    My 4 year olds school has begun using Read, Write, Ink and I'm slowly getting my head around it in order to support him at home.

    I was wanting to produce some worksheets using the font and also hopefully guidelines to help him size his letters properly (currently school has issued books which are just normal lined books and he's struggling to know where to put his pen to start letters); but I can't seem to find a free font that matches the read write ink style.

    Has anyone got any advise on what font style they use or if there is a downloadable font that matches the read write ink scheme exactly?

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    I think the chalkboard font is pretty similar imo. It's close enough anyway.

    Please don't do this!
    You son is four. FOUR!

    Give him some sand or rice in a tray and let him use his finger to write letters with you keeping an eye on the formation.
    Squirt some shaving foam on the tiles in bath time and use bath toys or fingers to form letters.
    Do lots of cutting out type activities to develop his finger muscles.
    Read lots of books to him so that he sees print as a positive thing.

    All these type of things are a useful and positive way to support your son.
    Worksheets at home is just a horrible idea.

    and no need to use any ink producing worksheets.

    The name of the scheme is 'Read Write Inc.' (as in 'incorporated').
