My 4 year old son is going to nursery .In general he is a good student and takes interest in learning but he has not been able to learn to write alphabets .His classmates can do that but he cannot which is making him lose confidence and he is making excuses in going to school. I have been trying to make him practise with the help of practise books but not of much help .Please advise what to do so that he can write like his classmates.

I understand your concern. Megha do share your concern with his teachers. They would let you know appropriate ways. Other methods you could use : Use phonics method- helps immensely Use flash cards and worksheets Phonics method would usually solve the problem. There are videos to help you in this. In six months if there is no improvement then you could a consult a special educator for professional assessment( to know if he has any reading and writing difficulties) and early intervention.
