My 4.5 year old was a reluctant writer.
So I took a step back.
I knew my preschooler would write when he was ready.
I also knew that I could begin to teach him letter formations and important prewriting skills using using magnets, going outside, and using highlighters. I didn’t push the pen and paper and you don’t have to either.
You know the saying, "Your preschooler won’t go to college in diapers?
Allow this to apply with learning.
Slow and steady, keeping in mind that preschool is not a race. Your job as the parent or educator is to integrate smart opportunities to play and learn which will act as building blocks to the final goal.
