### Teaching Printing

Teaching printing to kindergarten can be a challenging task . Introducing letters in the sequence below can assist at making this task less of a problem.
Begin with the letter "c"
"c" turns into
d, a, g, q, o, s, f, e

Next letters would be the down letters like in "l"
"l" turns into
t, i, , k and u

Next letters would be the down, back up and around letters starting with "r"
"r" turns into
n, m, h, b, and p

Next letters would be the slanted letters starting with "v"
"v" turns into
y, w. x and z

The Kinderplans.com alphabet program tries to follow this letter sequence of introducing the letters, however, it does deviate slightly from this because it incorporates sound blending (word families) and themes so following the exact sequence was more challenging.
