Learn and remember the stroke sequence that makes up each letter in the Filipino alphabet through fun verses. Practice on road letters.
We start of the fourth step with the Ekissa Kalsada and Sulatsa Kalsada. The Ekissa Kalsada is a repetitive action that the students will do by tracing an “infinity sign” over and over again. It is getting the students to cross the lateral mid-line of their bodies which then activates both brain hemispheres and helps both sides of their brain to work together. Although this movement is quite simple, repeating it for just a few minutes every day will reduce or eliminate letter-writing reversals. After mastering the Ekissa Kalsada, students can now move to the Sulatsa Kalsada and later to the Titik sa Kalsadawhich exercises the correct letter formation.
Writing is now so much fun. Our fourth step exercises our writing hand as it works together with our looking eyes. Turning, spinning, and sliding, we will learn to form each letter by putting together a series of strokes. To add to it, each letter has its own stroke script to help students remember where to start and where to end. The stroke script will give clear instructions to guide the students the proper location of each letter on lined paper.
Writing letters with the Letrang Kalsada and a car, Kardng Tamang Pagsulat and Iskrip ng Pagsulat students will definitely find writing enjoyable and they will want to do it over and over again.
The capital and small letters are grounded on blue-red-blue-red lines which help students become more aware of the size and boundaries of the print. So let’s encourage the students to write neatly and master forming each letter correctly. Each child who uses step 4 will definitely enjoy the ride!
