Does anyone know rhymes to use when practicing letter writing. I know all the rhymes for number writing, but not for letter writing. My students are having a hard time with the letter "Ss". Thanks!

S writing

S is a swan swiming in the water show them how to make the head and add a dot for the eye and down to the bottom where it sits in the water. Later tell them to pretend the eye is there but don't make it. Remind them the tummy of the swan always points the way it is going so they don't make it backwards.

PAF song

This isn't a song for a particular letter but one we sing every day when we begin our letter work. It is sung to "If you're happy and you know it..."
Where do you start your letters, at the top, top, top...
Where do you start your letters, at the top,top, top...
If you want to write a letter, than you better, better, better,
remember to start them at the top, top, top!

Unfortunately, no matter what visual or verbal clues I give my kids for proper letter formation during our many modeled nd shared writing activities, many of them still continue to form letters improperly at the end of the year...Oh well, there's always first grade!!

number rhymes

Here is a copy of the numberr rhymes:

Number rhymes;
0; Around you go and around you go
That's the way to make a zero
1; Pull down once, then you're done
That's the way to make a one
2; Around and back on the railroad track,
two, two, two
3; Around the tree, around the tree
That is how you make a three
4; Pull down push across, pull down once more that's the way to make a four.
5: Across the board, down you dive
Around the pool, that's a five.
6; Grab the spoon and stir the mix.
That is how you make a six.
7; Across the sky and down from heaven
That is how you make a seven.
8; Make an S but do not wait,
close the gate to make an eight.
9; First the head and then the spine,
That is how you make a nine.
