Preparing your child to print
Your child is experimenting with a variety of media in play, drawing and painting. All this helps to develop the fine muscle control needed for printing. Encourage drawing, cutting, construction, jigsaw, threading and other activities to develop this fine motor coordination. At school we print in lower case letters so it helps if this is the style shown at home. Encourage your child to hold a pencil correctly.
- If your child wishes to write at home encourage this style.
- Jonno – not JONNO
- Encourage your children to form circles anticlockwise from a 1 o‘clock position to help with the correct formation of letters.
