PRE-WRITING Activities1. Two skills are needed before a child can successfully write letters:

Write 1st and last name and birthday as slowly as possible. What muscles are you working?

17a. Small Muscle CoordinationSkill needed to hold a pencil and to make basic strokes.Provide activities where the child is using their fingers to help develop the small muscles. Like What?Puzzles, building blocks, play dough, clay, rubber stamps, magnet letters, small cars and trucks, crayons, etc.18b. EYE-HAND CoordinationThis allows the childs hand to react to what the eye sees.Like what?Drawing, tracing, cutting, painting, pasting, finger paints, typing (key boards) lacing cards, stringing items, etc.

192. PRE-WRITINGAs a child begins to represent different pictorial ideas using straight lines and circle drawings, they are beginning to write.

20Make writing & letters FUN!At first, the majority of preschool children lack the skills for traditional writing.Provide a variety of early literacy ABC activities without holding a pencil.

First have groups make a letter out of bodies. Show Brooklyns book of letters.21

Handwriting22Childs Name1st ask the child if they want to have you write their name on their paper.Maybe they want to write it.Maybe they dont want their name written on the paper.a. Take the time and effort to learn how to spell the childs name correctly!

They learn this by watching you.23

b. Teach the child to write in lower case letters. Only the first letter in their first and last name has a capital letter.

REVERSALS:c. Young children will often reverse letters or write parts of the letter backwards. ball = dall The order of letters in a word may be reversed.Tom = mot = o m tBoth are normal and should not be a concern, yet.
