THIS is How Neat Printing Must Go!
It seems I could remind my kids a thousand times a day that each sentence needs a capital at the beginning and punctuation at the end. This year my revamped posters are getting a lot more attention in hopes that it will drive the point home a little more effectively and quickly. Time will tell. 🙂
I also wrote a poem about penmanship. THIS has REALLY helped. I AM LOVING IT!!! We refer to it, recite it, and discuss various chunks of it all of the time. I really think it is the smartest change/addition I’ve made to my classroom in the longest time. Seriously, I LOVE IT! The kids are working harder than ever to form their letters correctly.
