Handwriting Practice on the Interactive Whiteboard

If the classrooms that you work in have an interactive whiteboard check out this cool free program entitled Sky Writer. You just click on the letter and the plane makes each letter in the air. The children can trace along with their fingers. It is also a fun visual for the child to see how the letter is made. Although, the plane drives a little fast for some letters and it is only lowercase letters. Another idea would be to have the child try to trace the letter before it disappears, too. Let me know what you think if you try it.

Added 1/19/2010: Students can watch letter formation at as well. This is much more exact in the letter formation.

Or how about trying actual letter formation from MeddyBemps. Here you can watch letter formation and write letters as well.

Added 6/2/2011: Just found this website,, for some more ideas for handwriting practice and the interactive whiteboard. This website has many lesson plan suggestions for students with special needs.
