    Thanks everyone! I found a manuscript one at FortuneCity. I loved the D'Nealian letters to color on the abcteach.com site.

    I really appreciate your help! You guys are the greatest!

    I found a neat site to make your own worksheets. I am going to make a sheet for each child with their own name for a practice page.

    www.dltk-teach.com/alphabuddies/tracer_pages.htm

    Click on customizable tracer pages and follow the directions.

    Pretty cool!

    Thank you for posting that link Amanda. I have two teachers here who have been wanting that font for a while now. They are going to love this! ^_^

    Access your control panel and go to "fonts". Once that is opened go to file and scroll down to "install new fonts". Follow the prompts at that point and the new font will go directly into the font folder for use with you word processing. (This may be slightly different according to your OS)

    Thanks so much Margo--I knew I needed to get to some sort of control toolbar, but I couldn't remember how. I kept clicking the "start" button and then not seeing where to go. Once you said "control panel" it made complete sense. :D

    Thanks again.
