ZB Style - The Letter Rr
Practice Writing the Letter Rr
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 worksheet have both tracing and practice worksheets. The hollow letter worksheets have starting dot.
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.
The animations are un-intimidating and hand-drawn. While both lowercase and uppercase letter r can be drawn without a pencil lift, many times, uppercase R is taught using one pencil lift or with two strokes. Animations are included for both variations of uppercase R.
