Holding a pen or pencil and drawing or writing something is a simple task for adults but taking that leap for a child is a big one. We start with proper hand placement. If a child holds the writing implement incorrectly, make sure to fix it; you don’t want any bad habits to form. The next step is making sure that they can make proper pencil strokes. We then move on to hand eye coordination. I find a great way to see where your student’s strengths and weakness are with writing is to watch them color. It tells you so much about where they are at. These worksheets will help you gauge where your students are at their writing skills and help them move forward.
