Each session the two lists are identical, in extra-large and medium font. 📝Complete the lists on an iPad with a stylus pencil, or print the PDFs and complete with a marker, pen or pencil. ✍🏽Enrolled learners receive my brief video about how to achieve a comfortable and efficient pencil grip.

Grades Offered
❤️For each session, learners receive: 
🥇 PDFs of dotted-font handwriting lists in extra-large and medium font. No printer? Use a wipe-off board, notebook, or iPad
🥈 A colorful BINGO game with photos that match the word lists, plus 8 additional photos. Printing is optional
🔡 If you would like to have a movable alphabet of your own, I recommend going to alisonsmontessori.com and purchasing "small movable alphabet with box, red and blue" item number L07
