Slow down and remember the 3 C’s
Clear- Make your letters and code clear. Use Upper Case and lower case letters instead of ALL CAPS. Your Upper Case letters should be the same height, and your lower case letters should be the same height. Practice making your letters angled in the same way…..around 50-55 degrees. Round letters do not have straight lines.
Concise- Use concise words. Enough said.
Correct- Learn a new word every day and practice spelling.
