Penmanship Tricks of the Trade

It's a new year which gives students time to focus on their goals and areas for growth. Some students really struggle with penmanship. Here's a tip that might help.


Tape a quality writing sample on a student's desktop so it's always in view at right at their fingertips!
In the sample above the student showed appropriate spacing and formation of letters which serves as a wonderful daily reinforcement for this student that success can be achieved.

What are your handy penmanship tips?

I'm linking on up with Mrs. Standford's Hump Day Linky.

  1. Great idea! I've given students models of their own writing before, but I don't usually leave the model visible all the time. Thanks for the tip. I don't always have students create final copies of their writing, but for some kids I rewrite their rough draft myself so that they have an exemplary model to look at.
