The Targeting Handwriting NSW Year 6 Student Book focuses on developing students’ own styles, while maintaining a general emphasis on fluency and legibility. The book includes: some useful alternative letter shapes and joins; more ‘mature’ real-world applications of handwriting, eg. developing a signature and tips for note taking; teaching pages with two sets of copying lines, for reinforcement and extra practice; a section on calligraphy. 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. The teaching of handwriting is an essential part of the writing curriculum.
