How to teach a child to write?

 

  • Make It a Fun !

            Kids start writing when colours and patterns entertain them. Let them create different designs using slate & chalk.

  • Ensure a Good grip

            Give your child a pencil or a crayon which fits his palms comfortably, providing a good grip. This will make writing easy to your kid.

  • Allow them to Scribble

               Let your child start scribbling in a plain paper do not stop him. Seeing designs appear on a paper will encourage them to scribble more.

  • Show Enthusiasm and Excitement while they write

              Show excitement by clapping and saying super, good etc every time your child scribbles something. This will make them happy and encourage them to write more.

 

 

  • Make the Margin lines more visible

              In a plain paper draw a big circle or square or triangle or rectangle or any different shapes where they have margins orborder within that they can scribble. And enjoy writing or scribbling.

  • Make use of Tracing

              Tracing will make it much easier for a child to learn the curves & lines in a shapes. Draw a few shapes and let your child trace them.

  • Limit their Interaction with electronic devices

               Mobiles and Tablets may make your child lose interest in writing. Also avoid teaching him how to write on a tablet as it will make a lose to hold a grip on holding a pencil.
