Hi Mac Thanks for that. We have the KBER disk and are using the cursive font from this. I have also found that layed writing CDROM and want to order it to have a look. So how are you going about it in Reception ?? We started last week with working on children with letters in their names in a multi sensory way - we used chalks outside, painting letters in water and small sand trays. We are going to continue provide lots of different opportunities to work on this. It is hard for some children who can already write their name. What is your policy in Reception ? We are looking at forming cursive letters and leaving spaces in between and children who are ready to join may join. However when writing sentences later in the year I can see it being hard for the children to distinguish between gaps for letters and finger spaces. Do you use any other particular resources ?
