Gurmukhi Writing Practice Workbook
Practice makes perfect!
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.
Checklist for Writing Gurmukhi Letters
To record and track the student’s progress in writing the Gurmukhi letters, a checklist is available on this website – see Resources > Free Downloads. This checklist is particularly useful in identifying Gurmukhi letters for which the student may need extra practice.
An achievement star is provided for each of the Gurmukhi letters in the workbook. Achievement stars and praise boost young students’ confidence and self-esteem. To praise the student for effort, correct letter formation and neat writing a gold star sticker can be awarded or the achievement star on the workbook page can be coloured in. Stickers that hold personal meaning to the student can also be used as achievement stickers 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.
