FREE Dotted Letter Font For Tracing
Backstory: my son needs practice with hand writing (youngest kid in class means he’s behind in terms of fine motor skills PLUS he’s active and hand writing is so sedentary it bores him). So I’ve been trying – little by little – to work with him on his printing.
He still needs the lines for letter size (he make BIG letters most days). And he mixes up the direction of certain letters (his P often comes out like a 9). Yes, he’s been tested and no there’s no worry of Dyslexia. Just a boy who needs to practice printing.
I’ve been using alphabet dotted line worksheets (thank you Pinterest). But I had an idea this morning…what if there was a dotted line font I could use in Word to make my own worksheets?!
And there is! And it’s FREE!
Yes, it’s a FREE Dotted Letter Font For Tracing. And totally safe for downloading (I know I worry about picking up virus’ from downloading too). And no, this post isn’t sponsored…this is a free font I downloaded myself (safely) and have made printing practice sheets.
-> Go to FontSpace KG Primary Dots by Kimberly Geswein (or click that handy link I’ve put there). Click download. And then just go through the install prompts. Takes less than 5 minutes. Open up Word. Choose the KG Primary Font from your font menu…and BOOM…you can make your own printing worksheets for free.
My son is crazy for baseball now…so I thought I could harness his interest in the sport for printing practice. I created this Baseball Team Names printing practice worksheet pdf (click that link and it will take you to a pdf page where you can print it from your computer – no download required).
I added the logos to each team for fun. He can practice capital letters, lower case letters, spacing, and letter size using baseball as a tool. And then, read it back to me (reading skills too)!
You could do this for boys and girls.
