I have some kiddos that STRUGGLE with writing. I have the big letter writers, the obsessive tracers and tracers, the write so light I can’t see it guys, and I even have a write all my letters on top of each other writer. So yes. We work on writing with these kids ALOT. I know my kids are older but I still think being able to legibly write your name is a very functionally important goal. Since we know how helpful visual cues are – I like using visual structure to help with writing for these students.
I shared this activity (fine motor skills post) a few weeks ago:
… giving the small box helps show my students how big their letters should be. I use these reusable laminated activities in work station for independent work as well:
I love these tasks! Quick to make, easy to teach, and just wipe with a baby wipe to clean up! I decided to make some winter themed Copy and Write activities! Some times I forget to update some these oldie but goodie work tasks and I thought my guys might appreciate some new work tasks.
You can use these as worksheets but I love to laminate these and write on them with a dry erase marker. I make small packets (5-8) and attach them with a binder clip in the corner!
