Copying using lava paper


We were reading a Berenstain Bears book. After every few pages, we’d discuss a sentence to write, I’d write it and then he would copy it directly underneath. With this lava paper he knew the rules that you never go above the sky or the bees get you, you never go too low or the worms get you (they only like tail letters), and then you stay below the lava or it burns you. In this particular case handwriting is an extremely non-preferred activity (pretty much for all of my OT kids that is the case!) and we discussed how I didn’t mind if he wanted to go super fast with his writing, as long as it stayed neat and he followed the lava/worm/bee rules. I was pleased with his copying.
