ZB Style - The Letter Dd

Practice Writing the Letter Dd

Two Identical Lessons on Some Worksheets: On some of the worksheets, there are two identical lessons on each printable worksheet. Why are there two identical lessons on each sheet? It seems like a odd idea now and I am having trouble remembering why I decided to make them this way, but I suppose the second lesson could be saved and used a week or two later or given to a second student.

Dotted, Hollow, Boxes, and Practice: The letters are either dotted or the letters are hollow. One of the worksheets with dotted letters also have individual letter boxes with a starting dot. Each letter style, dotted or hollow, will have a practice worksheet. The dotted letter worksheets have both tracing and practice worksheets. The hollow letter worksheets have starting dot.

2-Stroke D, 1-Stroke D : Capital D can be written with no pencil lifts or with 1 (1 strokes or 2 strokes). I am providing both because I don't know which one you will prefer.

The Letter Height of the Printed Worksheet

"A" is pictured, but represents any worksheet in this set

Below is a photograph of my two copies along with an ancient yellow ruler that somehow escaped being broken over the decades. As you can see, the height is just over 1/2 of an inch or 14 mm. The letter size might vary a little from person to person.
