The Targeting Handwriting Victoria Year 1 Student Book gives students two pages of tracing, tracking and independent writing exercises for each letter, plus:

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 linked to Victorian CSF II outcomes. To be competent writers, their handwriting needs to be fluent and legible. Regular practice, three to four times a week, in fine motor skills and in letter formation will ensure the development of good handwriting habits.
