The Importance of Pre-Writing
Writing is a skill that most people use every single day, whether it be writing a note to a friend or writing a check to a utility company. Even in the age of technology, written word is still everywhere. But how do you teach a young child the proper way to write?
The first step is simple... pre-writing. Pre-writing is learning the skills necessary to begin writing. Pre-writing is an important step because it teaches children the correct way to hold a pencil, how to use a good, firm grip, and emphasizes the use of fine motor skills.
Once your child begins to scribble the next step is to work on tracing simple lines, zig zags, waves and shapes! This is an important step before letters and numbers!
