Copying from the board, exerting too much pressure writing…OT ideas please

Needing ideas for…

A) Child using too much pressure when writing (ie thick dark lines; fatigues easily from the effort of pressing so hard)

B) Giving a 15-minute or so lesson to an entire 1st grade class on copying from the board.

Have got a few ideas that I will share at some point soon, but would love to hear from my readers in the meantime. Going to do a quick Google search now (my brain is fried for the night…proof: I spelled that brian), and then go to bed…my goal was ridiculously early and it's already an hour past that….
