they are sort of poems that you say while forming letters for example for t you coud say "take it from the top, slide it to the ground and flick. And cross it quick!" (from foundations of literacy)

Thanks SmileyPR - that's a really simple, easy to follow script that will ensure support staff are giving the same instructions. I'm going to stick it on a cupboard door and have a copy with any 'handwriting type' activities.
