How Can you use this Letter Writing Pack?

Next, Here are some Tips to help with Letter formation:
As your child is working on writing letters, have them sign the letter. This is an added fine motor activity to help with coordination needed for pencil control! Besides helping with fine motor skills, click HERE to see other benefits for using sign!
Saying the letter and how to form it also helps with letter formation! If the child sees it, says it, signs it, and finally writes it, the learning process has now included a variety of senses!!
Posture is also important as children learn to write. Here are some things to think about:
- Is the chair and table at the right height? Feet flat on the floor?
- Assess your child’s grip to see if they would benefit from a pencil grip or different writing utensil.
- Look at the position of the paper. Slant the paper the correct way according to if the child is right or left handed?
