This will improve your pupils’ handwriting

Letters with circles on paper with lines, letters with slants all improve over time. Schools have access to a variety of techniques, tips and tricks when it comes to improving the handwriting of their pupils. There’s no doubt though that the vital starting point is being able to clearly demonstrate best practice.

From showing tripod grip and placing the helper hand in the early stages, to the finer details of joining up as things improve, your pupils initially learn best through observation. This is quickly followed up with referring to the WAGOLL on the classroom display and recreating it at their desk, and further reinforced by peer assessment, teacher support and an enormous amount of practice.

The most effective way of achieving all this is by using a good quality classroom visualiser – as this movie shows:

In the brief, using a visualiser to support teaching letter formation is effective because: 

  • You’re avoiding awkwardly writing vertically on the wall, blocking the view for some pupils and having your back to the class
  • Your hand and the pen is much larger under the optical zoom – pupils can see the finer details of your writing as it’s being written
  • You can showcase other pupil’s work for peer review – what’s correct and incorrect about it?
  • You can annotate over and magnify certain elements of a letter or a join between two letters
  • You can record movie footage of a WAGOLL and play on repeat for your pupils to copy, whilst you walk around the class to support

And alongside doing all this to support handwriting, you can use it in virtually all other curriculum areas.

The best place to start is by seeing real results in your classroom – to support this, one of our visualiser specialists would be delighted to come along to support your lessons! Just give us a call on 0113 8187930
