This new addition to Ladybird's I'm Ready...early learning series is developed by educational experts and gives children plenty of practice in learning and writing letters and words. Learning to form letters and numerals correctly and develop confident and accurate handwriting skills is essential in the first years of primary school. In First Writing Practice, children can practise key first handwriting activities, including both lower-case and capital letters, numbers, the letter sounds used in early phonics learning and full words, too. There is also specific help for left-handed writers. The middle of the book contains fun pull-out activities that show children how interesting and useful everyday writing skills can be. Make a shopping list, design a birthday card, create a recipe and more! This is the perfect first writing book for children in Reception or Year 1, it is the ideal follow-on companion to Ladybird's other I'm Ready to Write title, First Pencil Practice.
