August copywork handwriting practice in a TRACE OVER font is perfect for your beginning level writers. This set of 31 copywork pages comes in 2 trace over styles to choose from:
Trace over with guides
or just trace over.
You can choose what your child needs.
Trace over with guides has directional arrows and numbers so little learners know each step of letter formation as they trace. This allows you to focus on other aspects of handwriting such as posture and grip.
Each page is designed to coordinate with the AUGUST Holiday of the Day and contains a simple sentence, a variety of punctuation, and when possible common symbols such as the ampersand (&) colon (:) or dash (-). The pages also contain graphics your little artist can color relating to the sentence or holiday of the day.
Copywork is a great way to learn grammar, spelling, and handwriting all at once!
