Mechanics: M1 and M2
E0 - Beginners level

Description

In this lesson, students will learn to write with consistency in the size and proportion of letters, spacing within and between words. Also, they will learn to differentiate between upper and lower case letters. First, I will ask each student to write the alphabets in capital letters. Second, I will ask them to rewrite them in small letters. Last, I will ask CCQs to make sure that they can differentiate between the lower and upper case letters.Also, I will ask them to solve exercise No. 5 on page 12 in the book. As far as writing with consistency is concerned, I will give an example on the board. Then, I will ask each student to write a sentence about themselves in the same consistency.
