 When printing letters and numbers, encourage your child to start at the top and work down. Many children will begin their numbers and letters at the bottom, which is the incorrect way of producing them. Please watch your child and correct them if need be.

  • Have your child practice writing their name with only 1 capital letter and all the rest of the letters lowercase.
  • Spend a few minutes each day reviewing alphabet letters and word wall words so your child begins to readily recognize all letters and word wall words. Search for letters/words in books and magazines and use them to write sentences.
  • Have your child practice tying their own shoes and zipping their own jacket.
  • Have your child practice cutting with their thumb up and using their opposite hand to rotate the paper.
