Letter Roads: Capital and Lower Case Letters
This pack includes capital letters and lower case letters in NSW Foundation Font. Each letter of the alphabet is a road with a black background and white road lines. There is one letter on each A4 page. There is a green starting dot and an arrow to indicate initial direction. These correspond with the starting point and initial direction for correct letter formation.
Letter roads were designed to encourage correct letter formation and familiarisation with the alphabet. They can be used with a small car to drive along the road. Small items such as buttons, sticks, a ball and playdough may also be used in conjunction with these letters. This will help your child to engage with learning whilst promoting fine motor skill developed.
For best printing results, select shrink to printable page. You can also print multiple pages on the one piece of paper to reduce the size of the letters.
For further information refer to "Let's Drive down a Letter Road."
Print the following sheets and laminate for durability.
