  • Think aloud as you write to draw attention to your handwriting. Say, “I am being careful to use my neatest handwriting in my report. I want to make sure that my letters are the same size and not too squished together.”
  • Repeat this process with the following two sections of the report.

  • Record student ideas on the board (include simple drawings next to each idea to help students ‘read’ each word).
  • Pass out index cards to each student.
  • Explain that before writing their reports, they will get to practice writing out some of the things they want to include.
  • Encourage students to choose two things from the board and write them on each side of the index card. Tell students to practice using their very best handwriting!
