Spaghetti and Meatballs

Children’s writing can be hard to read sometimes because they SMASH their letters together. Here’s a trick to fix that…use an orange marker with a thin point for the spaghetti and brown markers with a thick point for the meatball. Model how you want the children to use their markers when they write letters and words.
* Draw a straight spaghetti line between letters with the orange marker (pointing out that if there is enough space between the letters, the orange color shouldn’t get on either letter).
* Draw a meatball shape between words to designate a larger space between words.
