Kinetic Letters

Kinetic Letters:

This week we are focusing on the slider family: v, w, x, z, k.  In our Kinetic Letter sessions we use special animal positions to help our bodies get nice and strong. This makes our handwriting much easier. Please see the video link below and join in with the animal positions.

Kinetic Letters Workout

Practise the 5 core positions of kinetic letters

At school we focus on the same letter group for two weeks. We work on the big arm movements first, writing the letter shapes in the air. Then we move onto the fine motor movements where we write them on paper, whiteboards and sometimes in sand.

Please choose one or two letters a day to focus on. See if your child can show you the movements in the air then move onto writing the letters.


Look at the video below to see how the letters are formed.

Remember to pick up your pencil correctly and start at the correct monkey. Practise three in a row and have a go at writing 5 words with the letter in.
