I homeschool my youngest but my two oldest boys have always attended public school. They are 14 and 12. The 14 year old doesn't have particularly great writing, but I can read it. My 12 year old's handwriting is so bad I really struggle to read what it says. I'm thinking of letting the 14 year olds go as is...he's so stubborn I doubt I'd get him to change his ways now, and he would really resent the time spent on this.
But the 12 year old's writing is bad enough that I feel like we need to do something about it. Any suggestions for methods of correcting writing at this point?
He has some letters misformed.
He doesn't write on the line...his writing goes up and down between the two lines like waves, making it really hard to read.
His spacing is horrible. We've worked on this before so it's gotten a little better, but when he's writing quickly it will look like one long word.
