Are your students slouched in their chair?
Do they need a quick brain break before a test?
Take a physical approach to handwriting and help your students learn how good writers sit!
Practice Perfect Posture includes a poster/handout that describes the body movements to improve your posture from the Handwriting Without Tears® Curriculum.
It also includes two sets of "tickets" you can give to students.
The Posture Doctor can help if your posture isn't healthy.
The Posture Police is a certificate that identifies students with perfect posture.
A fun way to introduce proper posture is to dress as a doctor in a lab coat/stethoscope/etc. and give the students a "Smartie." Tell them it's the Posture Doctor's medicine for good posture.
Then, I have students with good posture join the police force and help me spot others deserving of a Perfect Posture Ticket.
Provide your students with an opportunity to be successful writers BEFORE you take pencil to paper!
