K-3 handwriting skills include: Printing capital and lowercase letters; placement and use of end punctuation, commas, apostrophes, quotation marks; use of capitals to begin sentences, the word I, names of people, geographic places, holidays, brands, and appropriate words in titles.
Tools are included for teachers, OTs, and students: Mini-posters of skills, data collection sheets, self-monitoring of skills in practice and in writing.
With these tools, your students will know what they are supposed to learn, how to compare their work with the expectations of the skills, and how to implement those skills in their writing. Progress charts for students increase student motivation and awareness of learning goals, success criteria, and application of new skills in their writing.
Common Core State Standards have been selected for use in class and OT sessions from English Language Arts (ELA) for teachers and occupational therapists to work on handwriting and early writing skills.
Create student folders with skills posters and self-monitoring sheets to allow students to track how they are using their skills in their writing.
Skills posters can be printed on cardstock, laminated, and hung in the writing area as a reference.
Progress charts for teachers and therapists provide data for progress reporting for each skill by grade level. These can be used beyond the grade they are first taught in as students continue to build on their skills over the years.
For students with IEPs, suggested IEP fine motor goals can be used or modified for the common core standards addressed in this packet.
This is a must-have packet for all K-3 teachers and OTs who teach writing!
