Choose Your Own Alphabet Chart Printable

Choose Your Own Alphabet Chart Printables

Having a simple alphabet chart available for young writers can greatly assist with proper letter formation.  Hang a chart on the wall, keep a laminated copy on the table, or slip one in the front of the writing notebook if you use one.

Homeschoolers and classroom teachers use a variety of handwriting methods so I am offering a few different options!

There’s a regular manuscript font, a cursive font and a D’Nealian font. One blank, one with lines, and one with stroke help {numbers}.

Want a variety of choices for writing paper for your young kids?  All in ONE place?

I have put together a set of many different options that hopefully will help many of you.

You can browse through the pack and see the options and then choose the one that suits your child best to use!  When your child’s needs change, come back and choose a different paper.  Print only what you need so there’s no waste!

Here’s a peek at the options included.  The top set is all thicker lines with the center dotted line, which is typical for younger writers.

Below you can see some I made with a handwriting guide at the bottom of the page {print, cursive and D’Nealian options included}.  This really helps my daughter so I thought maybe it might help some of you also!

Below are the options with a drawing box…

The set below has thinner lines with no dotted lines, which we move to after a child doesn’t need the dotted midline as a guide for handwriting.

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will be sharing another printable pack that will go along with this writing pack!

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons!

Here’s a couple of articles sharing more about the what, why, and how!

Email Subscription Missing Images and Subscriber Freebies

Subscriber Freebies from


We have a new subscriber freebie plan and I want to be sure I explain it well so all of you can get subscribed and grab your freebies in the correct place! 


Are you getting emails from me with missing images?

We have been having trouble with my Feedburner email feed {which thousands of you use} and many of you have kindly emailed me to share that you can’t see the images in the email. I am slowly trying to encourage everyone to unsubscribe from the Feedburner email feed and subscribe to the blog posts through MadMimi {which is where new freebies will be located as we move forward}. 

I am going to help walk you through this, and I am sorry for the inconvenience.  Feedburner is a free email service and MadMimi is one I pay for so you get nicer emails with that one! I can’t seem to figure out the problem with the Feedburner images not showing, thus the need for change!

Which mail are you getting from me?

If you get emails from me with individual blog posts, they either look like the one on the left or the right.  If they look like the one on the right, you are fine and don’t need to change anything. That’s the MadMimi feed.  The one on the left is the one causing images to not appear and is through Feedburner.



If your emails from me look like the one on the above left, here’s how to unsubscribe and change to the one that works!  At the bottom of your recent email from me, click “unsubscribe now.” This is a screenshot of the bottom of my Feeburner email feed to show where the unsubscribe is.


Subscribe to our MadMimi Email Feed…

Then go here and subscribe to my MadMimi Email feed, with this one you can choose to have posts delivered individually or a once a week wrap up.

If you choose the weekly wrap up, the link to your freebie will be in the weekend’s post, as the weekly post comes every weekend {no later than Sunday afternoon}. I also send out one last email for the weekly feed to all new subscribers on the night a freebie expires so no one misses it.


A note about the other options…

Newsletter ~ this is where our ongoing subscriber freebies are shared, which you can see here. This is also how you get our free Where to Begin with Tot School eBook.  These are ongoing and don’t expire.  This is also where I send special promotions, and some other personal emails. I recommend clicking this one too so you don’t miss out.

Oily Little World Blog Posts ~ this is our essential oils blog, you are welcome to follow us there to see this part of our life!

Subscriber Freebies!

The new rotating subscriber freebies will ONLY be in the MadMimi blog post emails as outlined above.

Now, be sure to stay subscribed and check the bottom of the emails often!  I am going to put at least one subscriber freebie in the MadMimi blog post daily and weekly emails at ALL times!  This may be something new, or might be something from my Teacher’s Notebook Shop. There may be more than one freebie at a time!  I won’t always announce what is there on my blog, so be sure to open your emails from me to see what is there!

This is a screen shot of the subscriber freebie section.  There is a header, a graphic of the freebie, a text link to click on to download the freebie, a link to where the freebie is normally found, and finally the date I plan to remove it {so you get it downloaded in time}.

Subscriber Freebie Independence Day eBook

I hope this encourages and blesses many of you! It’s my small way of saying thanks for being subscribers to our blog posts.  I love staying in touch and want you to stick around.    Subscribe, open those emails, grab your freebies, and stick around for more!
