Alphabet Desk Mate

Looking for a handy visual alphabet reference for your students? I’ve created this for Tinker Bell so she has something on her desk that she can look at when working on her handwriting.

I’ve found that keeping something close by really helps in proper letter formation. If they can’t quite remember how a letter is formed, they can quickly glance at their desk mate alphabet strip and in the words of Tinker Bell….Voila’!

Soooo….I present the Manuscript Desk Mate:



And just because I know there are a bunch of you working on Cursive…the Cursive Desk Mate:



And don’t worry, I didn’t forget all you D’Nealian fans out there either!



The download includes all 3 fonts, and 2 sizes of each Alphabet Desk Mate, one 8×11 and one 18×4 so hopefully one of the sizes and fonts will work for your student!

Click here to download the Alphabet Desk Mate!

I hope this helps out your kiddos with their handwriting!

    Thank you for this wonderful idea. I also appreciate that you included the cursive letters because I’m teaching my pre-K how to write in cursive first.

    I spent an hour looking for something EXACTLY like this a couple of weeks ago and never found it. Thank you for creating exactly what I was looking for!

    Thank You!! I have been wanting this very thing for my pre-k kids! Do you have a number line printable somewhere too?

    Thanks for creating these. I am using HWT and I don’t want to buy a pack of 20 or more for just 2 kids. Some of our print letters are different but it’s easy to modify! I don’t think there are any computer fonts that match them!

    You did it:). You always seem to know what we need!
    All of my boys love to reference their handwriting books when writing. My 6 year old just started to teach himself cursive. These strips will really help!!
    Have a fun, blessed school day!
