A couple of weeks ago I shared a post about teaching writing skills to preschoolers, which was mostly about the fine-motor skills that are needed to learn to write, not so much about the actual mechanics of teaching writing.
This week I saw this post about teaching handwriting from the Measured Mom, which explains how she does it, for example teaching uppercase letters first and starting with those that are easier to form.
The page has links to lots of free worksheets for practicing the different levels of letter formation, but you can also download a full set of more than 330 handwriting worksheets in several different styles for just $5. These are great for practice with little kids or if you have a child who needs practice with forming particular letters later on.
Do you have any tips or resources you love for teaching writing? I’d love to hear about them!
