Handwriting Worksheets and Workbooks
Find Early Learning Success with our Handwriting Worksheets
Handwriting is a crucial skill for kids as they move through their early school years, beginning with individual letters in preschool to writing full sentences in Year 2.
Despite the growing role of technology in all aspects of life, handwriting remains an important skill, and contributes to overall reading and writing fluency. Experts warn that switching to a keyboard too soon can harm a child’s reading and writing progress. In fact, research shows that fluency and speed of handwriting are correlated with fluency and speed in typing.
Using the handwriting worksheets in our I Can Be a Butterfly and Gargantuan products to improve handwriting ensures that your kids' reading and writing fluency remains on track. They'll get plenty of practice with these handwriting worksheets, while reinforcing their knowledge of the alphabet and enjoying hilarious illustrations and storytelling.
I Can Be a Butterfly, an engaging storybook which includes handwriting practice worksheets, is available as a hard-copy handwriting workbook, or as a handwriting worksheets pdf you can print at home. Although it was designed as a collection of KS1 alphabet and handwriting sheets, it can also be used as handwriting practice KS2 worksheets printables for older kids who just need a bit of extra handwriting practice. Our Gargantuan Year 1 English Workbook, meanwhile, covers a full year of English, including ABC and handwriting practice.
Handwriting may not seem like an essential skill for the modern world, but it actually helps to consolidate kids’ knowledge of letters. Reading handwritten texts forces kids’ brains to learn that different variations of a letter still mean the same thing. The more handwritten texts they read, the faster they become at recognising them in print.
Kids (and adults!) are more likely to retain new information by writing it down. “Write to remember” is a simple rule of thumb. Research shows that kids with better handwriting exhibit greater neural activation in brain regions associated with working memory and increased activation in the regions associated with reading and writing. There is a significant correlation between the quality of handwriting and overall academic achievement in reading and writing. Our improve-handwriting worksheets were created with this research in mind. A little practice using handwriting worksheets goes a long way to helping even the messiest writers start to build consistency and confidence in shaping their words.
