Making Your Child A Better Writer
Provide your child with different writing materials to experiment with such as pens, pencils, crayons, chalks, paints, etc. on different materials like boards, papers or erasable surfaces.
It is normal for your preschooler to get confused with similar looking letters like ‘b’ with ‘d’, ‘g’ with ‘j’ or ‘u’ with ‘v’. Also, you may notice your child writing mirror images of alphabets and numbers by changing their sides. This is pretty common when they begin writing and is sure to improve with practice. As a parent, you may feel worried or satisfied with your child’s writing skills. The best person to tell you how he or she fares in writing is your child’s teacher. Discuss with the teacher on areas that require improvement. Work on them at home, in a fun filled manner.
