hi Nagarathna Kamath ! a child as small as 3. 2 years needs reinforcement everyday to grasp concepts for instance making a standing line and using it make alphabets, followed by slant line and moving on to curved lines. u need to practise one alphabet everyday even for a week or more, though using different mediums and techniques. bring colourful books for him or toys which have big displays reinforcing the same or even books which have alphabets in different textures which he can feel and register in his mind. u could even dip his finger in removable paint and allow him to write on a piece of paper or even floor which can be cleaned later. or he could write in plate full of rice or sand. u need to be innovative and find out what method interests him. pencil and paper at such a small age could prove to be a demotivator as its too tiresome to write with a pencil due to underdeveloped motor skills which are required to grip a pencil. you could also do exercises with him which helps him improve his motor skills such as throwing the ball up in the air and catching it, picking dal using tweezers and putting it another bowl,stacking blocks, using sponge to transfer water from one bowl to another, etc. using playway method and reinforcing same alphabet/number/color everyday u could help him learn better .practise , praise and patience is the mantra here. hope this helps!

Hi Nagarathna, good to e- meet you here. My daughter is 3. 11 and children learn to write , I mean typically full alphabets etc. only from the age of 3. 5-3. 7 and above. it is good that your child could draw a circle and straight line... as per what I have read a child should be able to draw a circle by the age of two. So don't worry... give him think crayons to do free hand painting as well as get books with large prints so that the child can start colouring the pictures... this will help in improving his grip on fingers... similarly... dough/clay also helps in improving their grip and mortar skills... the child will start writing once the grip is firm. hope this helps.
