Here’s a collection of handwriting resources that come in a variety of popular American and Australian school fonts.
I always look for the cutest graphics when making resources because I find they’re more appealing to children. Here’s a collection of cute handwriting resources that work well with students who are at the beginning stages of handwriting.
1. Alphabet Charts
These handwriting charts come in Zaner-Bloser and D’Nealian font. They also come in every Australian state’s school font – in both print and pre cursive. I’ve included extra write and wipe alphabet charts so to assist with modelling letter formation.
These Australian alphabet charts in every state school font are available here.

2. Handwriting Practice Books
Handwriting practice books can be a useful way of gradually introducing how to write each letter and number. These handwriting practice books focus on letter and number formation, so do not contain lines. They are ideal for beginners. Of course you can use them just as worksheets if you prefer not to make up books.

3. Handwriting Wipe And Wipe Charts
Write and wipe mats are fantastic for morning work or small group activities. Once printed and laminated, children can trace over the letters and numbers with an erasable marker.

4. Alphabet and Number Playdough Mats
Another popular way of practising letter and number formation is to use playdough. You can also mix it up a bit by using other items on play dough mats such as glass gems and paper clips.
