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

Like What?Puzzles, building blocks, play dough, clay, rubber stamps, magnet letters, small cars and trucks, crayons, etc.142. EYE-HAND CoordinationThis allows the childs hand to react to what the eye sees.These activities will help the child to develop writing skills:Like what?Drawing, tracing, cutting, painting, pasting, finger paints, typing (key boards) lacing cards, stringing items, etc.

15As a child begins to use straight lines and circle drawings to represent different pictorial ideas, they are beginning to write.

16Make writing & letters FUN!The majority of preschool children lack skills, at first, for traditional writing.Provide a variety of early literacy ABC activities without holding a pencil. Sensory letter activities Games, songs, booksLabel on items Word and letter recognition in familiar names and signs

First have groups make a letter out of bodies. 17



ALWAYS CONFIRM THE SPELLING OF A NAME UNTIL YOU HAVE IT MEMORIZED!They learn this by watching you.19Teach the child to write in lower case letters. Only the first letter in their first and last name has a capital letter.

REVERSALS:Young children will often reverse letters or write parts of the letter backwards.The order of letters in a word may be reversed.Both are normal and should not be a concern.
