How to improve or teach handwriting in small, easy steps.

Have you ever scratched you head wondering how you would improve your child’s writing? Has not knowing where to begin put you off? Have you started and given up in a state of confusion with it all? If you answer yes or maybe to any of these then click on the link below. I have created a handout that should tell you pretty much all you need to know. I explain how to hold a pencil, position your paper, how to form and where to place letter on a line and a suggested order of letter learning.

I have a motto that I make my class repeat “Perfect practice makes perfect!” In other words, write less but write better. Don’t write 10 lines quickly, it is much better to write two lines slowly and perfectly. Children rarely object to practicing when they know that they don’t have to do the whole page!

I have taught many, many children to write and know that it is not always an easy task. It takes lots of time and practice. It you take it slowly and systematically you usually win in the end šŸ™‚
