A Christmas Carol CHRISTMAS practice Handwriting Worksheets
Today’s Christmas practice handwriting worksheets are very similar to Day 1’s cursive sheets as well as Day 5. The layout is similar in that it includes:
- blank sheets for older kids
- handwriting chart
The only difference today is that your kiddos will be writing sentences and passages from A Christmas Carol in either cursive or manuscript. They get to choose!

Handwriting Tips FOR THE CHRISTMAS CAROL PRACTICE HANDWRITING WORKSHEETS
Below you will find a few tips to help with these Christmas Carol practice handwriting worksheets (or any handwriting worksheets for that matter).
Tip #1: Struggling Writers
If your kiddo struggles with holding their pencil or marker, be sure to read 5 Tips for Pencil Grasp Development. It gives ideas for how to help the muscles in their hands. Another post to check out is Pencil Grasp: 5 Fine Motor Activities.
Both these posts will equip you with the dos and donts of helping your kids write -such as only using a pencil grip as the last resort and using broken pieces of crayons.
If you want your kids to work on tracing first then try a few of the fine motor worksheets and activities that are listed at Fine Motor. Some of these posts include the Christmas fine motor activities that I have shared recently.
Tip 2: Saving Paper and Resources
I am the first to admit that I LOVE paper- the brighter and heavier it is the better. If you would love to save paper, simply print the pages and either:
- laminate the handwriting charts
- slip the charts into protective sheets
Doing this allows your kids to reuse the sheets as references without destroying them.
Tip #3: Include your older kids
Make copies of the blank handwriting sheets so that you can give your older kids sentences or paragraphs to write as well. You can either use a favorite Christmas book and have them write a paragraph or two. Don’t forget that they can also write the Nativity story from the Bible.
