Handwriting web linksThese handwriting web links provide lots of practise materials that may prove useful.

Bickids ran a handwriting Olympiad competition which is over now but there are lots of resources there for practise.

Teach Handwriting  “We have designed the Teach Handwriting and Teach Phonics websites (and plan to create others) because we know early intervention can make such a difference to a child’s education and future. 

We believe that every child matters, not some more than others, and this is why the sites are completely free.

By sharing our knowledge we hope that you will be able to help and support your children in ways we wish we had known about, and had access to, when our girls were younger.

We hope that they can support and empower parents, carers and educators in logically and progressively helping their children to develop at a pace that best suits them.

To support schools we have created handwriting teaching manuals which provide timetables, lesson plans and resources to ensure their children get the best start.” (Teach Handwriting)

There is masses here to help teach all children nice handwriting, it is detailed and breaks the process down into small parts.”

Kids Health, Five steps to better handwriting “With handwriting, your body and mind need to do many different things all together and in the right order. Your shoulder needs to stay steady while your wrist and elbow move in just the right way. Did we mention your eyes have to follow what your hand is doing? And that’s not all. You need the brainpower to know how words and letters are supposed to look and make decisions about what you want to write — Is the answer to Question 4 “flipper” or “flapper”?” (Kids Health)

There is hope and advice offered here for every age! It is possible to improve handwriting from childhood onwards. Learning these five practices even at a very young age will help children develop their handwriting skills.
