Let’s talk about our future – the children. I want to share my experience as a social media writer and provide early childhood educators with some helpful advice on kids education. Usually, it is hard for a teacher to grant enough attention to all of the kids at the initial stage. The kids grow up so quick, demand a lot and absorb every possible word that it seems you are not able to control these processes. Get ready to be well-prepared and well-educated while working with children.! A child is about to start writing, and you should become their trusted educators!

Writing is a Game!

Writing means typing words and units using the general knowledge of the alphabet. If your kid is already a school pupil and can clearly separate A from E or C from K, then it’s time to start writing!

Preschool and early school age children perceive and internalize the in most cases through the game. The funnier game leads for, the more effective the learning process will be, and there’s no education without recreation. Thus, here are some practical and entertaining games, which were developed to help your kids learn to write!

1) Funny pencils and weird pens. You can use different clerical writing tools with unique and eye-catching design (but not scary). This will activate kid’s mind more and lead to better learning. You should use little pencils, colorful chalks, wax pencils, toy pens and so on.

2) Make the tools clutch up the kid’s hand. It’s critical for pencils to be holden tight and comfortable. It influences on kid’s penmanship, and first steps are the most important. They set the basis of which the following skills will be discovered. You can use a wax pencils with paper covers or make them by yourself, using plasticine and colorful paper.

3) Writing whenever it’s possible. Give the kid more practice and more reiteration. Using the fridge magnets, the child can combine them into different words. You can buy special edible alphabets so that the child may eat, play and train.

4) Limit the space making up the borders. If your child already knows how to write letters, but it’s still difficult to keep the right shapes and sizes. Well, there’s a clever and funny trick! On the sheet of paper, that you kid uses as a notebook, you can drag on the bright straight lines. Tell the child to keep the letter within the line limits every time he will approach the line.

5) Control the space between the words. As the kid writes the world, he can cross over the regular space and enhance the space between the letters. Take a colorful 5-7 mm wide piece of paper. It would be a ruler. Tell the kid not to leave more space between the letters than a ruler’s width.

6) Train the “eye contact” exercises between the exercises. To keep eye muscles in tone, don’t forget to use the relaxing activities using colorful cubes. Playful eye winking helps with blood circulation and brings a dozen of fun. The kids love these exercises!

7) Finger-play games. Your child is only learning how to handle his sensitive fingers. To play means using a  notebook with letters and a scissor. Apply these helpers to guide the kid’s hands hold a scissor and cut proper letters. This practice leads to nice results and the kids love to play while learning.
