Printing letters and writing words

This week’s activities will focus on printing letters and writing words. Five year olds are gaining the fine motor skills needed for printing letters and words, and they are expected to write more often. At school your child probably has his or her own journal for writing letters, words and sentences as well as illustrations! As you work on writing skills with your child encourage printing from left to right, top to bottom. Don’t focus on spelling. Allow your child to write phonetically (spell it as you hear it) and always help w/spelling when needed. Keep writing time positive and fun!
