Writing Lowercase Letters
Before we can walk, we must learn how to crawl. Well, same thing goes for writing. Before we can learn to write, we must first get a grasp on the fundamentals. Basic motor function is needed as a precursor to writing. Things such as throwing a ball, squeezing play dough, coloring, etc. are good examples to help gauge your child’s motor function capabilities. After motor function comes line work. Our alphabet is composed of straight and curved lines that children must learn to master. When both motor function and line work is achieved, your child is ready to write. In this book your child will learn to write lowercase letters a to z. Children should be taught letter recognition and not just memorize a song or letter order so you will find the letters in this book are in no specific order in a way to better help your child isolate and identify letters. In addition to writing lowercase letters, your child will practice associating words with their beginning letter.
