About These Worksheets.

Dear Parents & Teachers,

I learned Calligraphy as a young girl, and since then it has been a part of my life. Although it was just a hobby, you never know which skill proves to be useful at which phase and during which phase, playing which role in your life.

When my son didn’t want to sit to write, I realized that he finds this entire ordeal a tad bit boring. I felt if I am able to provide a source of inspiration which is lacking, we might be able to make some progress. 

And so I started writing in front of him using color pencils, calligraphy nibs, etc. He got fascinated with the process of handwriting, and as a result, not only did he start writing but also developed remarkably good handwriting.

When he grew up a little, he wanted more of the stylish lettering work. And with this desire to learn Calligraphy, it was his turn to inspire me. I found some good chisel markers, which kids could use easily and then I created these worksheets. 

We used a few in the last School vacations, and they worked like magic. These have served us really well and kids who were really averse to sitting down to practice writing seem to fall in love with letters.

I hope they will be useful to you as parents or teachers to help your kids spend their time constructively and that you also will be able to inspire them.

May more of our little ones fall in love with lettering.

Yours Calligrahically,


How to Use These Worksheets?

You will need chisel markers with up to 3 mm broad tip size. If you don’t get any, try highlighters with chisel nib. It’s good to practice with colorful, no-mess, sturdy markers before moving on to the chaotic world of ink, nibs, brushes or brush markers.

A Word of Caution:

 1. Chisel markers might be slightly blotchy, so test them with a variety of papers before taking the prints. The bond paper worked fine with my markers.

 2. You might want to check out erasable markers with very young and or super naughty kids. This would enable you to rectify any accidental and unwanted decoration from your little ones.

The only pre-requisite to using these worksheets is, you should be able to hold the chisel marker pen at a 45-degree angle to the paper.

Kids tend to forget the angle or hold the marker in the opposite direction altogether. It will take a little while and a different number of attempts for children before they get a proper grip.

 If you have any experience with chisel markers or a chiseled nib, you would be able to correct their grip and guide them in the right direction.

Once the grip is perfect, encourage them to get neat, clear strokes. You could make them practice the same stroke with a pencil if strokes are jerky.

I have included a blank practice paper too in all the full sets. You should keep a number of these handy in each session.
