Since Ishaan was one year old, I used to give him crayons / brush to write on papers. Later even tried with black board which I thought can save paper. It gave him a good grip to hold a pencil. This helped me to have a better start for introducing him to writing.
Firstly I repeatedly did a oral lesson for him to recognise the alphabets. Would ask in any paper headlines / any material. Now, I am teaching him to write standing, sleeping lines or strokes and started letters with only these two storkes. Alphabets E, F, H, I, L, T are covered first.
Happy writing 🙂
Tip: While teaching kids write alphabets, we can even teach phonics for that particular letters. It makes easy for them 🙂
