Letter formation

We teach letter formation in 4 different families: Curly Caterpillars, Ladder Letters, One Armed Robots and Zig Zag Monsters. These videos guide you through how to help your child form them correctly and any misconceptions that they may have. Letter formation is covered in phonics daily, however it only covers the sound that the children are learning. If you wish to work with your child on their formation then these videos are a good guide.
