Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. The capital letters I, E, F, and L all start at the top tramline.
  2. The capital letters I, E, F, and L all go straight down.
  3. The formation of capital letters I, E and F need you to lift your pencil to add the other horizontal lines.

Common misconception

The height of the vertical line is sometimes too short or too tall.

Emphasise starting the vertical line on the ascender line and finishing on the baseline.

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

Make sure you take your pencil off the page to make the horizontal lines on these letters.
