Skyline - when letters start at the sky line.... (all capitals) and lowercase b,k,l,t
Plane Line - most lower case start here a,c,d,e,f,g,i,j,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,u,v,w,x,y,z
grassline - where many letters go to -
worm line - the no capitals go here. lower case g, j, p,q,y go to that line...
So for lower case a
I would say lower case a is a round plane line letter. it starts at the plane line and makes a circle to the grassline back up to the plane line and trace a straight line back down to the grassline.
Lower case j is a wormline letter
it starts with a line starting at the plane line. write a straight line down from the plane line past the grass line and down to the worm line, and then make a curve.
it really helps!
This is a new program, and the kids are REALLY picking up on it. we only share 1-2 letters per week. Ill try to find the verbage (its specific) and post tomorrow as it is at school!
