It’s time for a set of Christmas Carol Practice Handwriting Worksheets! So far I have shared cursive handwriting worksheets as well as manuscript ones. Did you grab them?
Can you believe that we have only 2 more days left in this series? Wowza! Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Activities and Christmas Worksheets! For 12 days in December I will be helping you homeschool through the Christmas season with fun activities and worksheets for your kids.
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!
The New Library (The Homeschooler’s Toolkit)
Sadly, we had to close the old free library because of too many errors and hiccups. We now have 3 levels of membership over at the Homeschooler’s Toolkit :
Here’s a sneak peak of The Basics membership- the entry level membership. It has content that has never been in the old library and boasts over 200 printables and counting.
Popular Christmas Books to Borrow or Buy
Below you will find a list of popular Christmas books to read to your kids including A Christmas Carol. You can also have them read it if they are able to. And don’t forget that audiobooks also count!

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 with you with the dos and donts of helping your kids write -such as only using a pencil grip as a 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 reference 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.
