Hang Man for writing practice

Print Friendly

I love to play hang man in therapy because it motivates kids, and they can practice writing their letters and focus on getting the letters on the line, and forming them properly. I usually just play on a blank piece of paper, but I thought that I would make a template that has the spaces already there for kids to try to fit their letters in the spaces. I also made a shaded little guy hanging from a playground bar for kids to trace over when drawing in the parts of the man. I want kids who have trouble with drawing to be able to practice those visual perceptual skills.

I made a full page model, and two and four to a page to decrease the size of the spaces that the letters should be written on.

  1. Melissa and Doug makes a hangmad game on a wooden board with tiles that you have to flip over for guessed letters and to make the “hangman” Great for writing and FM skills of flipping the tiles. They are really hard to flip at first!
