    Hey all...


    I was wondering if there was a magic way out there to teach kids how to form their letters correctly. Are there any songs or chants out there to help them remember how to form their letters?

    I know some people refer some letters as "monkey letters, tall, short" etc,

    Any help will be great!

    Please im desperate!:confused:
