Handwriting Aids and LINKS to lesson sites & other helpful sites

Recommended Posts




Ideally, alphabet sentences should be fairly short and, hopefully make sense. I have a collection of them--some of which are quite contrived--such as, "Seven wildly panting fruit-flies gazed anxiously at the juicy bouncing kumquat." :sick: :blink: I've chosen some of the better sentences to list below. Most of us are already familiar with:

"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." Here are nine others:


1. Pack my box with five dozen liquor jugs.

2. Several fabulous dixieland jazz groups played with quick tempo.

3. Back in my quaint garden, jaunty zinnias vie with flaunting phlox.

4. Five or six big jet planes zoomed quickly by the new tower.

5. Exploring the zoo, we saw every kangaroo jump and quite a few carried babies.

6. I quickly explained that many big jobs involve few hazards.

7. Jay Wolf is quite an expert on the bass violin, guitar, dulcimer, ukulele and zither.

8. Expect skilled signwriters to use many jazzy, quaint old alphabets effectively.

9. The wizard quickly jinxed the gnomes before they vaporized.

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
