For example, teach children to write the letter b by starting at the top with a vertical stroke, then making the loop to the right without lifting the pencil, rather than having children form the vertical line and the loop in separate strokes.
It also is useful to distinguish different standards for legibility depending on the purpose for writing; for example, in taking notes, ”messy” handwriting is entirely acceptable as long as children can easily read their own writing.
Focus initially on learning the motor pattern rather than perfect legibility or size.
