Many children do not have sufficient hand skills to support efficient handwriting. Young children are often encouraged to use pencils and markers before they are developmentally ready. Early writing practice often results in poor pencil grasp, poor legibility, bad habits that are hard to break, and an avoidance of writing later in school. In this workshop, you will learn about the foundational skills that are crucial for handwriting. Preschool-age children need to focus on developing crucial foundational skills to ensure academic success.

Key Takeaways
  • The foundational “Building Blocks” that are crucial for handwriting readiness.
  • Developmental grasp patterns and how to choose the correct coloring/writing tool for your students
  • Classroom strategies and useful resources sharing
