School Days - Pothooks and Slates

Description

Remember when they used slates and slate pencils to write with at school? Learning to write involved practicing pot hooks that looked like a sideways 's' without going over the lines. Once this was mastered you could move onto the letters 'o' and 'a' without going over the lines. Eventually we could move onto pen and ink.
