Zaner-Bloser is the classroom font you're looking for.

I bought the font ($20) and used it to make worksheets for my kids to practice at home. You can print it with or without the practice lines, with arrows, etc. Well worth the $$.

My wife uses a very large Comic Sans font to produce page-size letters for kids to use while learning to write in English. The reason for her odd choice, is that it is the only font we could find which has a lower case "a" as you write it rather than this "a". She also wanted the lower case "t" without the twiddle on the bottom - again as you write it.

Can anyone suggest a more attractive sans font (closer to those we use day to day) to teach print style letters (not continuous script) for elementary handwriting?
