LITERACY Writing the ABCs
  • Ways to Learn the ABCs without holding a
    pencil!

  • As a child begins to use drawings to represent
    different ideas, they are beginning to write.
  • Straight lines and circles begin to represent
    items in their lives.

3
PRE-WRITING Activities
  • Two skills are needed before a child can
    successfully write manuscript
  • Small muscle coordination
  • Hand-eye coordination

4
SMALL MUSCLE Activities
  • Any activities where the child is using their
    fingers will help to develop these small muscles.
  • Needed to hold a pencil and make basic strokes
  • Some examples of activities are
  • Puzzles - building blocks, play dough, clay,
    rubber stamps, magnet letters, small cars and
    trucks, crayons, etc.

EYE-HAND Coordination
  • The allows the childs hand to react to what the
    eye sees.
  • These activities will help the child to develop
    writing skills
  • Drawing, tracing, cutting, painting, pasting,
    finger paints, typing (key boards) lacing cards,
    stringing items, etc.

Make writing letters FUN!
  • The majority of preschool children lack the small
    muscle control and eye-hand coordination, at
    first, for traditional writing methods.
  • Provide a variety of ABC activities for the
    children.
  • Early Writing/ABC activities
  • Sensory letter activities
  • Games, songs, books
  • Label on items
  • Word and letter recognition in familiar names and
    signs

10
Handwriting Test
  • Today is your handwriting test on correct
    printing.
  • Write the entire Alphabet, numbers 1-10 and Your
    First and Last Name Correctly!

11
REVERSALS
  • Young children will often reverse letters or
    write parts of the letter backwards.
  • The order of a while word may be reversed.
  • This is normal and should not be a concern.

12
? Left or Right Handed ?
  • About 10 of all children use their left hand.
  • Watch and see which had is preferred.
  • Help the child by providing left-handed scissors
    and allowing them to set on end of table so left
    arm has room to work.
