Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. The capital letters A, H, K and T all start at the top tramline.
  2. The formation of capital letters A, H, K and T need you to lift your pencil to add the other lines.

Common misconception

The capital letter 'K' may look like a lowercase 'k' (without the loop).

Emphasise where the diagonal lines need to go to and model using the capital 'K' in words, such as 'Kevin' or 'Kick the ball!'.

Keywords

  • Vertical line - a straight line that goes up and down

  • Horizontal line - a straight line that goes from left to right or right to left

  • Diagonal line - a line that slants or leans

Make sure you take your pencil off the page as you form the second and third lines in each of these letters.
