Handwriting Font Question

Hi Blog Friends!
One of the things that I want to work on in my classroom next year is handwriting. We do have a little handwriting program, but it is a tad boring for the kids. I want to make some stuff on my own that my kids will like...Here's where you come in...

I have looked everywhere for some handwriting fonts that have dots or dashes to trace and I also want the bubble font that the kids can trace inside of to practice the letter. Does anyone know where I can get these fonts? PLEASE HELP! I promise that I will share the stuff I make! :)

I love the font penmanship print. It's free! Just google it.

Quicksand Dash could possibly work, but there's not much spacing between the dashes like you probably expect. It should be free. Just Google it!

Hi Jen! I just posted some handwriting pages in my TPT store. We have fonts for teachers at my school and I use it to make things for my classroom. There is also a "bubble letters" font that is free somewhere on the web! Hope that helps!!!

They have several Primer/school-type fonts on the Lettering Delights website too...

How funny, I asked the same question to Tammy over at Live, Love, Laugh Everyday in Kindergarten. She told me she uses one called LD Trainer from lettering delights. It is about $14 though to get the commercial license. Thanks for the sweet words on my blog this morning!!

I am doing the same thing next year. Handwriting for our kids is HORRIFYINGLY bad. And I take responsibility for not doing a good job of teaching it well. I use Lettering Delights LD Trainer on my stuff.

I'm also your newest follower! Check out my manly blog and we can collaborate on some handwriting ideas!

I have used several of the fonts at the following site. Mainly because we've switched from D'Nealian to manuscript and the site kind of had a free version of both. http://desktoppub.about.com/od/freefonts/tp/Free_Handwriting_School_Fonts.htm

I love fonts. I bought like a year ago a program at www.fonts4teachersblog.com with 56 fonts that is amazing.
