Sky, Grass, Ground

In English, some letters start in the sky, some letters start on the grass, and some letters go into the ground. At Little House, we teach students to decipher the difference between the different types of letters to aide in the development of their writing skills.

Grass letters, like a, c, e, i, m, n, o, r, s, u, v, w, x, and z, only touch the grass.

Grass to ground letters, like g, j, p, q, and y, start on the grass and go down into the ground.

Grass to sky letters, like b, d, f, h, k, l, and t, start on the grass and go up into the sky.

Use a sky-grass-ground lined sheet of paper to teach this method.
