Cursive Writing Practice: Jokes & Riddles
Meeting resistance with handwriting practice? Here are 40 reproducible practice pages with built in motivation your student is learning a joke they can then share with others! Isn't that clever? There is a short review at the beginning on how to form the letters, but this is more for practice than initial instruction. Each practice page starts with 3 words the student copies a few times. These words will be used in the joke written below. They then carefully copy the joke or riddle and the answer. For every joke they copy, there is even a bonus joke to share! It's so cute. The jokes are silly and goofy, just what kids like! Why do flamingos lift one leg when they stand? If they lifted both legs, they would fall down! The 3 practice words for this one are flamingos, stand and would. Once your student has done all of their writing practice, you can cut the jokes off the bottom part of the page and staple them to make a little joke and riddles book: there is a cover sheet in the back to color. It can take only 5-10 minutes per day to get in some cursive practice that your child won't dread. They may even ask to do more than a page a day! (Modern style) 48 pp, pb. ~ Sara
