I need some advice, tips.. anything. My 7 y/o son is in 1st grade. He is reading past grade level, doing well in all other aspects of school... except his handwriting. It is so sloppy. Its very hard to read, the words run together or are too far apart.. and sometimes the letters are formed poorly. Its getting to the point that his grades are suffering because the teacher can't read his work. We practice every night at home, he knows to take his time and slow down (though i don't think he does at school) offer rewards and we even are starting to take away things if it doesn't improve. I don't know what else to do. It seems he doesn't care about it.. or he gets really upset and says he can't do it. I know he can because there have been a few times where his writing has been decent..
Help me please.. I don't want this to be an ongoing problem for him!
