Teaching Handwriting – Practice Exercise Using Play-Doh | Parents


-When working with preschool age children,
I focused on teaching through hands on experiences rather than formal
hand writing instruction just as you’re willing to teach a child who
can balance on 1 foot, to hop. You can teach him
to write if he hasn’t developed pre writing skills. Once
fun activity to try at home is working with play-doh,
which is a great school for strengthening the muscles of
the hands needed for hand writing and forming letters. Let’s
say, want to teach the formation of the capital letter
E. I start by making 4 play-doh logs, one big
line and 3 little lines. First, I take the big
line and say, always start at the top, big line
down, little line across at the top, little line across
in the middle and little line across at the bottom.
You can have your child create the letter out of
play-do at the same time you’re modelling it, so he
imitates each step as you go or for a greater challenge, ask them to copy your model once
it’s completed.
