Handwriting is so fun to work on with little kids because the opportunities are endless…shaving cream, rice, oatmeal, chalk, pipe cleaners…everything is an opportunity for practice, just so long as you’re practicing correctly because as Daxson is fond of saying, “Perfect practice makes perfect!”
Joseph loves using sidewalk chalk to practice his letters...this day we chose to do "rainbow letters."
If Joseph's having trouble with a letter, he practices tracing the correct strokes on the letter I've drawn.
Proudly showing off his ABCs.
To practice the correct strokes, Joseph uses the sandpaper letters that I made for him. The correct strokes are shown with numbered arrows.
