Writing A, B, C- Monstrous Handwriting Alert!

You breathlessly wait for your child to write their first ‘A’ or even the first ‘1’, but when they start scribbling, the line marks go everywhere. That ‘A’ seems like a monster covering the entire page, while ‘1’ appears to be a circle! So, how do you help your kindergartner write independently?

What you need to know
