Welcome to our blog! We are the children from 2KM and 2KJ at Leopold Primary School in Victoria, Australia. There are 45 of us and our teachers are Mrs Kathleen Morris and Miss Kelly Jordan. We used this space to share all the great things that happened in our classroom in 2011.
In 2KM and 2KJ we are always trying to improve our handwriting and typing skills. It is important to have good handwriting and be able to type well on a computer.
We do lots of different types of writing activities in our class and we always try to do our neatest writing. Once a week we do a special handwriting lesson. We focus on a different letter each week and we need to remember the size, shape, direction and formation of the letters. We use Victorian Modern Cursive handwriting. Here is a sample of what it looks like:
Today we focussed on the letter Dd . We wrote the uppercase (capital) and lowercase letter Dd and we made up some interesting sentences with lots of “Dd” words.
We don’t always have to use paper and pen to write. We use computers to type blog comments, both at home and at school. There are some fun typing games you can play on the computer to improve your skills. Try out the games below!
