Happy National Day
Writing is a common academic task that is required when children and adolescents compose stories and essays, complete written examinations, copy notes and write messages to family members and friends. Parents and educators however expect that once a kid comes to school age, he/she should already know how to write. We have to consider that handwriting is a complex skill that requires the integration of memory, organization, problem solving, language and reading ability, ideation and graphomotor function.
Children who master the mechanics of handwriting enjoy writing and will write more often. Looking at what skills we have to work with will help kids to improve their handwriting skills.
  1. Handwriting readiness - Kids are natural learners. We should let them discover and learn facilitated with direct instructions so that they will learn accordingly.
  2. Pencil/crayon grip - The development of pencil grip in young children typically develops as they age. However, we have to make sure that we teach and demonstrate them how to hold a pencil and/or crayon.
  3. Posture - Posture is very important so that kids can write well. If they are not stable, chances are they will feel discomfort on their writing hand or other parts of their body.
  4. Pre-writing - A playful, developmentally based approach is the most effective way to develop pre-writing skills. Singing alphabet song and action songs, drawing stick figures and coloring are some of the activities that will help improve their pre-writing skills.
