Getting into motion
These motions will become increasingly refined by involving the whole hand and – later on – purposeful movements of the fingers. So-called exercises for practising smooth and even pencil movements will help your child learn the sequence of hand/wrist movements during writing. He or she should also get a feel for the writing rhythm, because when writing, we permanently switch between swift strokes and short breaks. Don’t hesitate to stimulate your child’s enthusiasm and curiosity for discovering the world of letters, as learning to write will enhance the overall development of your offspring.
