New Study Tool Promotes Skill Practice at Home

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Motivating students to practice the skills they are learning in the classroom is a difficult obstacle to overcome. Although every child is different, introducing new tools they can use at home can often gain their attention.

GoWrite! products attempt to offer students a unique way to practice their math or writing skills. In particular, the Self-Stick Dry Erase Handwriting Sheets are an innovative way to practice without going through several sheets of similarly lined paper.

Each letter-sized page has eight lines on it with a dotted line dividing it in half. This set-up forces students to be conscious of upper and lower case letters.

The sheets are self-stick, but repositionable so they can be reused and put in different locations on a regular basis. GoWrite! suggests using the dry erase page on desks, notebooks and tabletop surfaces.

Apply the handwriting sheets to any flat surface and let the practicing begin!
