Parents - Tip Sheets - Handwriting

Helpful Handwriting Hints

1) Trace each letter with index finger then a pencil before printing using correct formation (top to bottom/left to right for upper case).
2) Review one letter for no more than ten minutes each day.
3) Use a multi-sensory approach: Practice printing the letter using a variety of methods. Sidewalk chalk, dry/erase board, play-doh, shaving cream, draw the letter on someone’s back, air writing.
4) Proper positioning is important. Both feet should be on the floor. Sit straight up (no propping head on elbows or placing head on the table when writing).
5) Use the helping hand (non-dominant hand) to hold the paper while printing with the dominant hand. NO hands in the lap when writing.
6) Repetition. Keep saying the verbal prompts when forming the letters. For example (F): Begin at the starting corner. Big line down. Frog jump up. Little line. Little line.

*** Practice the letters that are illegible or the child is not familiar with. Do not confuse the child by teaching them a new way to form “M” if they have already mastered it and the letter is legible. If it looks like an “M” that’s OK.
