Yo! Just wanted to share a fun way of practising writing. This is what we did in class recently. We were practising the writing strokes (like circles and squiggles) that would help with writing mastery… take a look:
Some were done by my student, and some were done by yours truly. :) Hey and we weren’t just drawing animals, you know! Look carefully at the picture… we practised strokes for the letters…
- M in the camel
- S in the snake (also L in her version of the snake [see the nose?])
- X in the alligator
- O in the caterpillar and butterfly
…and so on. My goal in doing this little exercise with her wasn’t so much to write letters, but to practise those movements with a writing tool… and we had fun! :)
So if you’re looking for a way to improve handwriting, drawing (combined with other helpful things) can be a great help. So leave out a stack of pencils and scrap paper, and draw away! Have fun!!!
Thank you for reading!
