The following link contains a two-page worksheet. This is a collection of characters that are frequently written erroneously. Please complete the character sheet and return it for extra credits. The two pages together is worth the equivalent of one quiz. The grid is for noting the size of each component within a character. Please note that the extra credit requires diligence and focus. Any mistake in these sheets will result in no extra credit granted.
The following aspects of writing are being observed:
1. stroke order,
2. stroke orientation (slanted/straight), and
3. proportion of each part within a character (one part is much smaller than the other).
This is an optional work for students who would like more writing practice. Best of luck!
