One of the things that I told Lucas’ teachers during our first parent-teacher one-on-one was that I wanted Lucas to learn how to write. It’s one of those things that I, as a mom, really don’t know how to teach my kid so I asked for the teachers’ help. One month after school started, I noticed Lucas being more interested in writing. It wasn’t perfect but you can see the letters in his strokes. Since I am on bed rest for several weeks, I took the opportunity to support his interest.
We started with some worksheets. I would write the letters on dots and I would ask him to trace the dots.
Then Dadi bought these neat writing books.
These books are printed on glossy boards and the kids can write on it using a white board marker. Lucas and I loved it! Now he can practice writing over and over again because we just need to erase everything and start over. I like the Little Hands First Writing Book because Lucas learns how to the read longer words that he is tracing.
In fact, when Lucas wakes up in the morning, it’s the first thing he grabs and does even before breakfast! I received a report from his teacher that his writing has improved and he initiates doing his worksheets at school. Good job, Lucas!
