Have you ever had or worked with a child who had any of the following difficulties with handwriting?
- Getting the proper grasp.
- Writing letters the proper way.
- Almost impossible to change bad habits of starting letters at the bottom.
- Reluctant to use pencils or markers.
- Spacing issues between letters and words.
- Unable to copy shapes.
- Poor drawing or coloring skills.
My guess is that many of you have because this is what you have told me before!
If you have or work with a child between the ages of 3-7, most likely their handwriting has been something you are working on or have questions about.
But did you know that BEFORE you can address many of these handwriting problems, you need to check to see if they know their pre-writing lines?
Introducing the Pre-Writing Skills Activity Bundle
This is a limited time bundle that I have put together to give parents, teachers, and therapists a resource for working on these handwriting problem areas.
I used my knowledge as an Occupational Therapy Assistant to create engaging activities that your child will have fun with.
I do not believe in only using a pencil or crayon to practice pre-writing lines on worksheets. Each of the products gives hands-on tool suggestions for increasing the fine motor skill practice your child will get with each activity.
With the Pre-Writing Skills Activity Bundle, you’ll receive the following resources
