I need to make a shopping list. So I get out a piece of paper and my special writing pen. It is easier if I use an easy flow gel roller ball or a felt tip marker like Crayola fine tips. That way, I don't have to press so hard when I am making the letters. We learned this tip many years ago and even had it written into my IEP.
Do you see how I am looking at the empty jug? I am copying the word "milk." It's a little trick I've learned.
