Have Your Handwriting Ready for Valentine's Day

Moms and Dads will love their Valentine's Day cards no matter what their child's handwriting looks like--but why not motivate the students to write well?

We made Valentine's Day cards lots of different ways today--with stamps, with cut-out shapes, with recycled placements cut into hearts and glued to the card page--anything that would tap the students' needs for fine motor and handwriting remediation.

If you look closely at the center photo you'll see that the student cut out tiny placemat leftovers to form, "Mom," on his stamp.  Good thing "Mom" is spelled the same from left to right and right to left...
