I decided this week to have my 11yo work on his printing by using a calligraphy pen and specially lined paper. Yesterday, he kind of did his own thing with the alphabet. I copied out an alphabet today for him to do exactly the same thing, and he did.
But the kicker is: Both yesterday and today, he used the calligraphy pen to do his math. :D And today, he did his math BEFORE doing the handwriting work. lol
