FREE Handwriting Practice Pages

On a recent trip to the library, we found this funny little alphabet book on the shelf display. As I flipped through the pages, I knew my children would love it. Word play always seems to capture their attention and give them something interesting to talk about after reading the story, so I added it to our check out stack.

Take Away the A by Michael Escoffier is a cute alphabet (or alphabeast) book that plays around with removing letters from a word to make new ones.

My kids really loved guessing what the next new word would be as we worked our way through the alphabet. For instance for the letter G says, “Without the G, Glove falls in love.” The illustrations are very imaginative and fun as well. This book is a new favorite and I’m positive that we’ll be checking it out again.

To accompany this book, I created some Take Away ABCs handwriting practice pages. Each page features two words per line. One word with a letter in alphabetical order, and the next without it to form a new word. Many of the words are selections from the book while others are new!
