The Targeting Handwriting NSW Year 4 Student Book focuses on consolidation of joining skills, plus:
- teaching of trickier joins like joining to s, horizontal joins to e, joined double f and joined ft
- students begin to assess their own letter size and spacing, spacing between words, and slope
Handwriting is one of the most crucial skills students will develop in primary school. Targeting Handwriting covers the handwriting curriculum in a clear and structured way, with content directly linked to NSW syllabus outcomes. Writing is a vital, compelling form of communication. Children need to write every day, for a variety of purposes and for a variety of audiences. To be competent writers, their handwriting needs to be fluent and legible.
