    My students are having a hard time with writing letters. Once upon a time, I saw some songs/rhymes that go with letter formation but I can't find them. I can't remember the ones for letters but I remember "Around the tree, around the tree, that's the way to make a three."

    So you know where I could find it?

    I know what you are referring to with the around the tree and that is number rhymes. I have the number rhymes if you want them.

    Thank you coca but what I really want are the words to letter writing (I just used numbers as an example)

    I don't know the rhymes--would love to see them! But I find that referring to the "upstairs, downstairs, and basement" is helpful: above the dotted line, below the dotted, and letters with "tails".

    ABC Letter Formation Poems

    Go to the ABC Letter Formation Poems in the Little Giraffes site. It starts with A-Pull down twice from the point to the top. Add a seat to view the apple crop. If you can't find it, Google ABC Letter Formation Poems and the Little Giraffes site should come up.
