Coaching Hint

How to Correct Spacing Between Words

To help students grasp the concept of spacing between words, prepare two samples of writing with correct spacing between letters and words: one of a typewritten sentence and another of the same sentence in manuscript or cursive handwriting. It may be helpful to have some samples on graph paper turned the long way, so the whole sentence is readily identifiable. Help the students recognize the extra spacing between words as compared with the space between letters. You may wish to skip a line after each line of writing so that students can use the model to write below. Create a folder of such practice activities for students who struggle with spacing concepts.
