From a very early age a child writing their name is the first significant academic milestone. There is a lot to be done before this stage in terms of development of fine motor skills, such as sticks in playdough, tracing in gloop, the list is endless.
When it comes to learning to write their name a child should be first encouraged to trace dots in various shapes such as waves, zigzags and then specific shapes such as circles, squares, triangles and rectangles. Once they have achieved this they can start to trace over letters and numbers. These are featured in a free practice kit available when you join the free newsletter.
