    I have my students practice handwriting in the mornings while I am collecting homework, doing attendance and lunch count, etc. I'm noticing some of my kids do NOT need help w/ handwriting and this time could really be better used for them. Any ideas for activities they could do besides handwriting practice? I hate to have them do it for no reason.

    Have them word build? Give them a topic to write about? I'm not completely sure.. I don't have that problem this year.. my current class needs all the handwriting practice they can get!

    I would let them do journal writing if they are ok in their handwriting.

    What kind of printing practice do you do? Is it copied worksheets or just something you made up? We use HWT for our printing program and I always see that my students need more practice!!
    TIA!

    Kids that have mastered the letters fro the week can be doing copywork of longer sections of text (from a book you're reading), a great quote, etc.
