Christopher Jarman Copy Books  1-3

Copybook 1

Use in conjunction with the Resource Book The Development of Handwriting Skills by Christopher Jarman

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

  1. There are 32 pages of graded activities designed to help young pupils learn a basic modern handwriting style.
  2. At the top of each page are instructions which are written primarily for the teacher or adult who is helping the pupil to learn to write. Some pupils may, however, be able to read these for themselves as they progress.
  3. The activities in this book are designed to be taught to pupils before they copy them out. Teachers should select the appropriate page and write it on the blackboard or put it on the overhead projector, to show a group of pupils how it is done. Individual pupils may be taught by demonstration in their own writing books or on sheets of paper.
  4. Pupils should trace or copy the activities as revision, and not do them for the first time from the book.
  5. Left-handed pupils should sit at the left-hand end of a table or desk. Their writing paper should be tilted to the right.
  6. The use of various colours of crayon or fibre-tip pen may encourage the pupils to do the activities several times.
  7. The lines inside the back page are the guidelines for this book.
  8. If necessary, a right-angle of sticky tape may be put on the table top as a guide.
