Improving Handwriting

Hi everyone!  I'm Amy from Cahill's Creations and I'm here to share some tips on how to improve handwriting.   I'm a kindergarten teacher and we are the foundation for teaching kids how to hold a pencil, form letters correctly, and begin to write!  These skills are so important to learn in kindergarten.  Most of my kids are doing great with handwriting, but there are still a few that need some extra help with new strategies.

So, I did a little research and found some paper on Amazon that would be helpful to these kids.  It's highlighted, which allows the kids to focus on forming the letters correctly and gives a guide for writing.  I noticed a big improvement with one of my kids and will continue to use this type of paper for writing.

I sent a bunch of this paper home to practice writing at home too. 

I also created some handwriting practice pages to help with letter formations.  I sent a bunch of copies home and I put them in protective sleeves to save paper.

Check them out to see if you can use them too!


  1. Thank you for the awesome handwriting tip! I have quite a few firsties that still struggle with where to place letters and how large or small to make them.
