If Student Is Not Writing at Grade Level
Your student may need extra help with handwriting. Review the criteria listed above, decide which materials would be appropriate for your child, and begin at that level. The teacher’s guides will help you address letter formation, spacing, cursive connections, sentence writing, placement of letters on double lines, and more.
You may need to meet with your child’s teacher to determine the appropriate amount of written work from your child. When a child is learning a new skill, it may be necessary to decrease the amount of written work until your child masters handwriting. If overburdened with writing while having bad handwriting habits, your child will become very frustrated. Allow mastery of handwriting skills before expecting quantity in the work. The teachers’ guides can guide you with troubleshooting.
