This is more for my 7 - almost 8 - year old. How good should handwriting be by now? Emily is so messy and sloppy. She doesn't erase well at all.

Am I expecting more than I should at this age, or do we need to work on being neater?

We are focusing on neatness now and his teacher insists upon it. If Levi doesn't do a good job, he has to erase and start over. I also make sure the erasing job is well done. He is learning that doing his occasional homework or writing letters, isn't a race and that if he doesn't slow down it usually takes longer. My handwriting is horrible so I'm not going to push precise penmanship, right now, but it must be done to the best of his ability. We do sometimes just write out certain letters 10 or so times to improve on the stroke. The other thing that we have done is we got him some technical drawing books to help with his writing skills. He likes doing technical drawing.

Can't help but I have a question for my 4 year old. When should we expect her to be able to write smaller? Her name is Alexandra but we call her Alex so she writes that on her papers at daycare but it takes up the entire top of the page. I bought her a book with the lines on it, is it too early to start practicing smaller handwriting?
