Ladders to Learning Series-Writing Nursery (Second Edition) is designed to develop the pupils’ skill and ability in free-hand and finger exercises and to write letters through creative exercises in scribbling, coloring, drawing, tracing different lines and curves, and copying activities.
The worktext adopts the spiraling approach such that the pupils gradually develop their skills in writing each letter of the English alphabet. The pupils are taught how to sit properly and hold their pencils and crayons before beginning to write or draw. They will also learn left-to-right progression and the concept of up and down.
The pupils are given ample number of exercises in drawing lines, curves, and circles. This helps them get ready to write letters. Each lesson begins with a demonstration of how a stroke is drawn or how each letter is written. These are followed by exercises to master the skill.
