ds has a holiday journal that he has to write a few sentences in every day. I've noticed that almost all his letters are formed incorrectly (with the exception of c and a). We've now practised all the curly caterpillar letters (that's what they were called when I was at school) but he's forming all the others in unspeakable ways that will no doubt give him trouble in the future unless it's corrected. I'm a bit surprised that he hasn't been helped more at school.
Does anyone have any links to good handwriting resources. He's been taught to print letters with cursive tails but not entry points. He tends to start at the tail or add it afterwards. [sigh]. He will be going into Y1.
My ds1 formed his letters in really bizarre ways at this age (eg b as an o and then a stick somewhere in the vicinity . It all came together in y1 when they started joining up. He has lovely handwriting now (going into y2) although he is still a reluctant writer.
Thanks mrz for the jingle. I will do that with ds2 in a year or two (he is only just 3)
