D'Nealian Handwriting

We teach D'Nealian handwriting in kindergarten.

When you are helping your child write his/her name, be sure to use a capital letter for the first letter only – all the others should be lower case.


Example:   Trevor        not        TREVOR

(It is difficult to change their habits when they get to school!) You will be receiving a letter with a letter formation chart.
