QUICK WRITES BUILD FLUENCY AND WRITING MUSCLE. This girl has just completed a fluency activity where she practiced writing her favorite "heart word" sentences with good handwriting. Documentation is from an action- research project with Nellie Edge and Jaime Corliss.

In Kindergarten-Friendly Handwriting we encourage quality work and differentiate handwriting instruction. It is equally as important to provide a creative challenge for the child who comes into kindergarten already reading and writing as it is to provide a framework that supports the less experienced learner. Build a scaffold of success for ALL children and let your proficient writers soar!
