What you need to know

Practice daily writing drills. Don’t keep them long wherein your child can lose interest. Copying a paragraph from a book, writing few lines in his journal, writing a list of sight words, preparing the grocery list are wonderful ways to not only practice writing but also working on handwriting speed.

While writing, right posture, pencil grip and positioning of paper matter a lot. Get him to sit erect and write by setting the paper at a slight angle in front of him. Avoid distractions and noise so that he can focus well.
