I developed the road writing in response to a need that I found when working with some of my students.  It is lines and curves that I printed on magnetic paper that look like roads.  They are sized to use them to make letters.  Roads seemed to me to be a natural progression to writing.  You follow roads with toy cars, and then can progress to following them with a crayon.

Road Writing Complete Digital Download


Included in the digital download are files for:

  • Big roads (straight and curved)
  • Skinny roads (straight and curved)
  • Big alphabet letters (upper and lower case)
  • Skinny alphabet letters (upper and lower case)
  • Big road maps (4 sections)
  • Skinny road map (the 4 road maps combined on one page)
  • Big road letters combined on lined paper for practice
  • Practice alphabet pages (4 total)
  • Road Font

It will be your job to print everything out.  I recommend printing the big and skinny roads, and the skinny letters on magnet paper, and then a self stick laminating sheet over top.  Then you cut them all out.


Print the big alphabet letters, road maps, and big road letters combined, and then laminate them back to back.  This will give you capital letter on one side with lower case on the other, and colored road map on one side and white on the other.


With the maps, you can put the colored maps on one side and the white ones on the other.  You can then use clear packing tape to tape them together in a way that lets you fold them.  See picture below for tape pattern.

These files and documents are for personal use only, and are intended to be printed out and used by one individual during therapy or doing activities with children.  They can be printed multiple times, but are only to be used by one adult/therapist.
