Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Text Features-Let's Make Some Inferences - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


Some of my students still are not using their best handwriting, which ultimately affects their ability to reread their work and find answers that they need.  I continue to remind them to use "2nd grade writing" and write clearly. I let them know that the use of good handwriting shows how smart they are and that they are getting ready for 3rd grade.  Sometimes this simple reminder about 'where they're going' is enough to encourage them to write more clearly.
