      Harcourt Trophies - 1st Grade  PowerPoints and CRCT Skill sheets were created by  Anne Miller  (11-9-10)      

 Book 1:   Guess Who? 

Teachers:  The PDF files are made partly with ball and stick lines and the comic sans are made with plain lines.  The skillsheets are the same. The handwriting lines should help the students continue to practice their handwriting skills.

 

 Theme 1:      

I Am Your Friend

 

BACK TO THE TOP 

Attention:    I found my CD with the ball and stick font.  So I put these skill sheets in  PDF files so when you open them, these documents should appear as I made them. 

The CD was produced by Educational Fontware, Inc.    They designs, manufactures and sells handwriting fonts based on workbooks produced by companies that make handwriting text to sell to  schools.  If you are interested in looking or purchasing a CD for yourself or your school site,  their web address is below.

  Skill sheets and PowerPoints for the stories were made by Anne Miller, but the links are from other sources that have collected and made resources for Harcourt Trophies. If you find any errors, please email me at lamiller_2@msn.com or lamiller_2@yahoo.com .
