Today I’m targeting teachers in Trinidad and Tobago as the Ministry of Education recently launched its “Penmanship with a Purpose” programme and we are turning our focus to having consistent handwriting instruction from Infant One to Standard Five. To aid in this regard I have a list of fonts here that you can use on your worksheets, resources or charts.
These fonts are consistent with the Traditional Manuscript or Print as stated in the Penmanship manual for Infants One and Two. Click on fonts to download.
KG Miss Kindergarten
KG Primary Penmanship
KG Neatly Printed
KG What the teacher wants
Glacial Indifference (Some of the capital letters are different)
For tracing try:
Miss Olsen’s classroom
National Dotted (the y is curved which is not in keeping with the Infant One and Two print but is recommended for Standard One)
Penmanship Print (has lines and the letters are spaced out in words)
I am still on the hunt for pre-cursive fonts that match the Standard One style. If I don’t find it then I may very well look into writing one myself!
Hope you find these useful. If you find more to add to the list, please leave a link in the comments. Thank you. Enjoy!

I found these some time ago and I have been using them. The children in my class love to use them. I let them use it with chalk and a chalkboard to build up those hand muscles. Thought I’d share them. A great find. Writing Practice Dice
