Gurmukhi Writing Practice Workbook
Practice makes perfect!
The student will be able to form each of the 40 Gurmukhi letters correctly.
The Gurmukhi Alphabet Writing Practice Workbook is created for children of 4 years and above. The 90 page workbook is designed to give the student practice in writing the Gurmukhi letters.
Gurmukhi Writing Practice Workbook Format
The format for each of the Gurmukhi letters is the same throughout the workbook. For each Gurmukhi letter an A4 page of dotted letters is given followed by a blank page. The student can trace over the dotted letters to practice writing them. The blank page provides the student with an opportunity to practice writing the letter independently.
It is important that the student is shown, by a parent or teacher, the correct letter formation for each of the Gurmukhi letters before the student begins to practice writing each letter.
Separate letter pages can be printed from this workbook of the Gurmukhi letters that the student may need extra practice in writing.
Regular writing practice is necessary for the student to become fluent in writing the Gurmukhi letters. It is important that days in the week are set, by the parent or teacher, for the student to practice writing the Gurmukhi letters. Thus giving the student plenty of practice as practice does make perfect.
Writing Gurmukhi Letters Checklist
To record and track the student’s progress in writing the Gurmukhi letters, a checklist is available on the Sikh Student Learning website. This checklist is particularly useful in identifying Gurmukhi letters for which the student may need extra practice.
A reward star is provided on each of the Gurmukhi letters in the workbook. Reward stars and praise boost young students’ confidence and self-esteem. To reward the student for effort, correct letter formation and neat writing a gold star sticker can be awarded or the reward star on the workbook page can be coloured in. Stickers that hold personal meaning to the student can also be used to reward the student e.g. stickers of dinosaurs, cars, fairies etc. Gold stars can be purchased from a stationary shop or the internet. Gold stars are also available from Amazon.
