handwriting without skipping lines


Recommended Posts

DS 8 has been using HWT successfully and now he's writing a bit longer like paragraphs. But he wants to skip lines between each sentence bc he says he doesn't want the basement letters (p, g, etc) to hit into his next sentence. While it makes sense, I think you need to be able to write continuously just on the page, right?


How do you get your dc to not skip lines.

I would mostly go with how large their letter formation is. Generally as your child gets more experience the size of the letters will decrease and they will be able to write on lined paper easier without the letters touching. If they are still touching skipping lines might be a good alternative.
