This is a really important procedure to teach at the beginning of the year. Teaching children how to layout their copy – both writing and maths is very important. By setting the expectation from the beginning children know what is expected.
For the perfect page – I use a spare copy and have 1 sheet for each child. We then go through how to layout the page step by step. After this we practice it in our copy. All children then have an example of what a ‘Perfect Page’ looks like and know the standard that is expected.
