Learning to draw and write letters and numbers takes lots of practice. It is important that children are taught how to form letters and numbers correctly.

Find out how your child is learning to write each letter and number in class so you can do the same at home. Look at the letter and number templates in your activity packs for guidance. Start at the dot on the template.

Follow the direction of the arrow with one movement without lifting your crayon. If there are two movements to form the letter or number then place your crayon again on the dot at number two and follow the arrow in one movement once again. Your child can practise again and again by using a different colour crayon each time. In this way your child is making a rainbow letter.
