How to develop children’s handwriting skills
As with everything else, get them to keep practicing so that they can do better! For preschoolers, name writing can help to build their early writing skills in a memorable and meaningful way. Another important part of learning to write neatly is to build pencil control skills. By doing more handwriting practice worksheets, children can get used to holding and controlling the pencil.
How to help your child in name writing
Here are some handy tips that might help your child on his or her writing journey,
- Build familiarity with their name such that it is visible in many places. For example on their belongings, in their bedroom on their toys. This will help them to remember their name and the letters which make up their name.
- Help them develop their motor skills by giving them tools such as pencils, pens, brushes to train with. Allow your child to experiment with these stationary even if it starts off with messy scribbles and doodles.
- Use toys that are letter based and introduce alphabet activities to your child’s daily learning. Let them learn the individual letters and alphabets and play name puzzles.
Should we hold our child’s hand when doing handwriting practice?
As we all know, apart from having a super low attention span and focus on activities. How do we then help them better to practice handwriting? Certainly, otherwise, I don’t think there’s any other way you can get them to independently start writing! Subsequently, when they get better and more confident let them try on their own!
