    Step #1 - Pre Reading & Writing:

    • pre writing shapes and pencil strokes - practicing basic letter direction; top to bottom of page, left the right
    • visual scanning - scanning the page to find objects is a pre reading skill needed to later scan the page from left the right to read
    • multi sensory play – pens and paper aren’t necessary at this age; think outside the box and integrate playdough, kinetic sand, paint, shaving cream** and different textures into play with these handwriting guides. Or use chunky paintbrushes or crayons on a vertical surface (easel or window) to develop gross motor skills before fine motor skills.

    **test on the plastic prints first to make sure the ingredients don’t damage the print

    • correct letter formation - start at the top at the green dot, left to right, finish at the red dot
