## 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.
