Origins[ edit ] Baybayin was noted by the Spanish priest Pedro Chirino in and Antonio de Morga in to be known by most Filipinos, and was generally used for personal writings, poetry, etc. However, according to William Henry Scottthere were some datus from the s who could not sign affidavits or oaths, and witnesses who could not sign land deeds in the s. It is an example of letters of the script arranged more or less in the order the Spaniards knew, reproduced by the Spanish and other observers in the different regions of Luzon and Visayas. Another source of evidence are the archival documents preserved and recovered.
Hi Write Intermediate Paper — Pack of Pages — Grade 2 You can purchase highlighted paper commercially; however our Assistive Technology guy easily generated this highlight paper using a program on his Mac.
Just for fun I tried my hand at creating highlighted paper with Microsoft Publisher. We also recommend the use of raised line paper as the students can feel when their pencil touches the line.
Another fun strategy is cheering out spelling words. I LOVE this strategy as incorporates movement and doubles as a multi-sensory strategy for learning words. Students jump in the air with arms raised high for tall letters.
Spacing Between Words Another issue that affects legibility is not putting spaces between words. In April, I wrote a blog regarding a specific strategy that our fabulous OT, Lyzz, uses to help students with word spacing.
Students who are not correctly using capitals or lowercase letters need direct instruction and practice. A reminder strip with simply upper- and lowercase letters on the desk may help.
Letter Formation Students who are not forming letters correctly will need re-teaching of the correct stroke sequence. Using multi-sensory strategies such as writing letters in sand or shaving cream will help.
For a more structured program, the Handwriting Without Tears is a program which is highly respected and has proven effective in improving handwriting. In general, students need practice in writing the letters correctly.
This will involve direct supervision when practicing writing as we do not want them practicing incorrect strokes remember: It will take repeated practice writing letters correctly to reverse an old habit.
Handwriting Without Tears now has a new app. I absolutely love it! Handwriting practice worksheets also provided the extra practice needed when learning correct letter formation.
These handwriting practice worksheets are available in my TpT store.
