Bubble writing - cursive handwriting scaffold

Like many primary school teachers I have tried a variety of handwriting schemes with varying degrees of success. Having thought through many common problems with handwriting I have developed a simple scaffold that places a bubble either side of the line to support letter formation. This simple scaffold provides a guide to consistently form cursive letters and ensure each letter is uniform in both height and width. Children are able to leave equal spaces between words and see clearly whether or not there is enough space at the end of each line for the next word they intend to write. There has been a huge impact within my class in a very short space of time and I hope you will see similar benefits within your own setting.

Included is a PowerPoint presentation including words from the Year 3/4 spelling list that can be printed as a handwriting pack for children to work through. Blank slides enable you to add words to suit your needs and finally 2 different sized PDF scaffolds that children can use to write on (If photocopied the bubbles will disappear to leave the writing that has been completed.)

Great resource which is having a positive impact on my pupils however I have found when I photocopy they bubbles do not disappear. Is there a trick that I am missing?

Hi, is there a trick when photocopying so that the bubbles disappear? I have tried it on the lowest density with no success. Apart from that this is a great resource and is having a real impact in my class.

Purchased for Year 6. Really helpful to fix cursive handwriting. The only problem I'm having is that the bubbles are not disappearing she the child's work is scanned. Is there a specific way that I would need to print or scan the scaffold in order to keep the child's work but get rid of the bubbles?
