Legibility Within Small Spaces

Sometimes students can write legibly if they are given wide open spaces for writing, but not when they have to write within a "prescribed" space.  To quickly see how well they write within a small space, hunt around in their folders or simply ask them to show you a crossword puzzle worksheet they've completed.

This student tends to produce large letters when given a large space to write his answers, but he sure wrote legibly when filling out answers to the crossword puzzle for science class.  Yes, it might not appear legible to some folks but this is pretty much the norm for a 3rd grader in our school system.  Also, his letters remained legible and didn't deteriorate over time due to fatigue or some other reason.
