     Practice Masters
  Write circle lines. Start at the green dot.
                                                            Trace circle lines. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

• Remind children that circle lines are round and that many of our letters and numerals are made using circle lines. Refer to the complete alphabet on page 5 in the student book, and go through the alphabet letter by letter and identify circle lines in their formation.
• Arrange children in pairs and have them practice circle lines on their partner’s back. Have them create forward circles and backward circles as per your direction.
• Read the directions at the top of the page as children follow along.
• Ask children to assume the correct writing position and pencil grip and draw circle lines to complete the beach balls. Remind them to begin at the green dots and follow the direction of the arrows. Identify which circles are forward and which are backward.
• Continue by reading aloud the next set of directions in the bottom half of the page. Have children trace the first set of large circles, beginning at the green dot and going in the direction of the arrow. Identify these as backward circle lines. Then move on to the next set of large circles, and have children begin at the green dot and follow the direction of the red arrow to draw forward circles.
• Follow the same procedure for the small circle lines on the second line, identifying whether the circle lines are forward or backward.
Time Out to Evaluate
Ask children to consider the following questions to evaluate their formation.
Were your feet flat on the floor?
Were you sitting straight with your back against the back of the chair?
Are your circle lines round?
OT Connection
“Old Brass Wagon”
Sing a song to the tune of “Old Brass Wagon” to practice circle lines. Use arm motions with the song to practice the formation of the forward and backward circle lines.
Circle to the left (or right), old brass wagon. Circle to the left, old brass wagon.
Circle to the left, old brass wagon.
We’re all learning to write.
