Lately my sons schoolwork has been sloppy, and I can tell he put very little effort into it. Hes in kindergarten. Ive seen him write his letters at home and he does a wonderful job. So im thinking the next time his schoolwork is sloppy ill have him re-do the entire page, and ill say "now wouldnt it be easier just to try a little harder at school so you dont have to do it again at home?" What do you ladies think?Answer Question

Too many distractions & he's in a hurry to finish up. That's a hard age & unless the teacher has an aide in the room, he will learn eventually that he's tired of redoing stuff & slow down to do a better job the 1st time.

Anon- if he's in Kindergarten- wouldn't it be best to nip the penmanship thing early?! Obviously the teacher thinks so. As far as Dr.'s that's why they are going to digital script pads, so people aren't given the wrong meds. Penmanship is important- so it needs to be addressed.
