This is How Neat Printing Must Go!

Hey peeps!
I revamped a few of my focus wall posters and thought I'd share them with you all.

Sloppy printing makes me CUH-RAZY! We work on it a lot in class. A lot! My kiddos no my expectation and work hard to write neatly most of the time.

I created this poem to help my kiddos remember the basic rules of printing.
We recite this little ditty every day during the first few weeks of school. Then, refer to it often as the year progresses.
"Are your letters with tails dropping below?"
"Hey, doesn't g have a tail?"
"Whoah! Look at how perfectly Cammie's letters stop at the lines with the dots!"

Having the visual reminder on the focus wall for the kids to refer to is helpful, too!

This little poem sits on the board beside these little reminders.

After laminating my focus wall posters, I put self-sticking magnets on the back of them so I can move them around as needed.

My focus wall is on the side wall in my classroom, but I will move a poster to our main white board when we're focusing on a skill. This also makes these reminders part of the learning, and not simply decoration.

If you'd like a FREE copy of these posters for yourself, click the pic below to visit my Facebook page. The focus wall posters are FAN FREEBIES. Just click the fan freebies tab (viewable on a computer) on my FB page.

Have a fabulous week!
