Our 2.6 year old boy, Kal-el, is now ready to begin writing.
I bought a Grade 1 writing pad with big blue and red lines for big letters, and taught him the lines:
1. Horizontal – Sleeping Line
2. Vertical – Standing Line
3. Diagonal – Sliding Line
This is pretty easy for our son to follow because he already draws almost straight lines.
My husband and I started looking for smartphone apps that teach kids to write. I came across this nice FREE app in the Iphone App Store by Moojoy, Andrea Perin.
This app’s name is My First Alphabet.
There is a hand that will show our kids how to write the letter with a chalk, and afterwards the toddler will follow the pattern, making sure he gets to pick up all the stars.
