Visual references are a good idea.
In the Size Matters Handwriting Program, these posters remind students about Letter Lines and their directional movement.
Always teach the information on the poster before hanging it. Be sure children understand and are invested in the concepts. After that, ask them where they’d like them displayed.
On the right. To the left. A little higher. A lot lower.
In fact, let the children tack them into place.
When your students participate in the decision making regarding where to place instructional information, you increase the likelihood that they may actually use that information when they need it.
Build the Buy-In.
