Letter formation video, Long ladder letter family
Help your child form each letter of the alphabet correctly with our stroke-by-stroke videos, with experts from the National Handwriting Association. In this video we look at the Long ladder letter family: l, i, u, t and y.

The Long ladder letter family (l, i, u, t and y) is formed with a long, downward movement made to start writing the letter. Our letter-by-letter video takes you through the correct formation of each letter, so you can help your child practise handwriting movements in the correct way.

You child can put Long ladder letter formation into practice with our targeted worksheets or find out more about letter families in our step-by-step Handwriting Learning Journey.
