Traditional handwriting practice doesn’t always help. Teaching one child does not mean we could use the same formula for every child that follows. You can have one child who is a great writer and another who just isn’t. One thing that holds true with each type of learner is that helping them improve their handwriting skills will help build their confidence to conquer future learning challenges.
This resource will walk you through 5 simple steps to build and improve handwriting skills in your children. Along with improving their handwriting skills, they will also practice fine motor skills and develop their hand muscles. Learn some quick items to use that will help little ones prepare for handwriting before they even learn to hold a pencil correctly.
I have to admit that I did not do enough early on to ensure my son had the practice he needed when he was learning to write. The frustration we both faced brought us both to tears. His handwriting even regressed as he learned more difficult subjects and when I tasked him to write longer writing responses. It was a really difficult time in our journey.
There are some exercises we do now to help him improve, but don’t wait as I did. Glean from these 5 easy ways to improve handwriting in kids now. You can also use the post’s free handwriting binder and worksheets to help your child practice.
