Good Handwriting Can Happen!

I feel like 90% of my students have excellent handwriting. I motivate them by using the Handwriting Fairy {and it's NEVER too late for you to start!}.   You might have seen {this} post of mine about the Handwriting Fairy.  I've actually created a whole packet that really ties everything together!





This packet will help motivate your students to have good handwriting! Did you know the Handwriting Fairy comes into your classroom each night and looks for neat handwriting? If she sees something she likes, she leaves them a "Neat Treat". 

In this packet you will find:

*Handwriting Fairy Book
*Neat Treat Printables
*Handwriting Fairy Craftivity
*Dear Handwriting Fairy Writing
*Whole class Tree Map {about Handwriting Fairy}
*Tree Map recording sheet 
*Bubble Map {about Handwriting Fairy}
*Expository Writing 
-How to Have Bad Handwriting
-How to Have Good Handwriting






Here's an example of the Handwriting Fairy craftivity 
the patterns and everything are in the packet}:



You can check out this packet {here}!

Fantastic idea!
Heading over to check it out.
I posted a neat printing poem I use in my classroom a while back. It helps. Sloppy writing is a pet peeve area of mine so I like all the help for the kiddos that I can get!

Super cute idea. I just saw on TPT that you live in Riverton and it always makes me happy to see Utah teachers! I teach in Kaysville. I just started a blog and am trying to learn the ropes, so you inspire me. Thanks!

I absolutely LOVE this pack! I blogged about it today and even created a talking digital fairy to go along with it and talk to the class about their writing!
