How to encourage your child to write better
Aug 18, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:35 pm
Writing is an important part of fine motor development. This includes your child’s finger and hand’s fine muscles, and includes how your child draws, paints and scribbles.
There are certain ways in which you can support your child’s development of writing skills.
You should provide opportunities for your child’s hands to open their fingers and make large muscle movements. You can introduce a variety of tools and textures to your child - oil pastels, thick and thin crayons, colors with fragrance, watercolors etc. When your child will see the equipment and material ready to write, they will have opportunities to explore their writing skills.
Make writing a fun activity and enjoy it. Whenever your child makes a drawing, encourage them, capture them and display them as it is. Keep one corner of the house dedicated to this, possibly a place where everyone walking in can see.
Some practices to make your child writing better include getting your child’s pencil grasp right, getting the lined paper be your child’s guide, giving them the ‘write’ environment, breaking down the task into smaller parts and appreciating them and giving them room to learn.

Hello Ma'am ! My son used to have a very neat handwriting. In offline classes he used to write so neatly and teachers always used to praise him. But since his online classes have begun, he is least interested in writing. I have to literally force him to write. Also his writing is becoming illegible day by day and his work is also not neat. How do I make him interested in writing once again. His age is 9 years . Kindly guide.

Namastey! Does making the child trace on alphabet templates or printed worksheets help in improving handwriting? My 5 year old girl's handwriting is very poor. Will making her write on those booklets or sheets help? What other things can help her improve her handwriting?
