It is very important for your kids to develop good handwriting skills so that they won’t find it difficult in higher classes while doing their assignments. Though, it is a computer-centric time, still it is important for your child to develop good and readable handwriting. Handwriting skills are really valuable as at some places it may also reflect your personality at your workplace.
Here are few tips through which you can encourage handwriting at home:
- Make your kid practice a lot
This is the best way to improve your child’s handwriting at home. The more they will practice, the more they will get better. There are a lot of practicing materials available on the internet.
- Shoulder girdle exercise
Make your kid to do shoulder girdle exercise before doing any handwriting task. Shoulder exercises help in strengthening and stabilizing the shoulder muscles that can free up the hand muscles for better handwriting. If your kid gets easily tired while writing, make them try these exercises as a break.
- Leave love notes
Leave love messages for your kid, either on their pillow, mirror or even in their bags. Ask them to write a reply and leave it for you. This will make your kid get involved in a lot of writing, thereby improving it.
- Make a comfortable grip
If your child doesn’t hold the pencil properly, he/she may get tired of writing. Give your kids rubber grips that are easily available at stationery stores. If your child loses a good grip, he/she may not feel fatigued while writing, and thereby improving the handwriting.
Improve your child’s posture
This also helps a lot in encouraging the handwriting at home. You can ask your child’s teacher about his/her posture how they sit in the class. You can visit your pediatrician and ask whether a visit to a therapist is needed or not.
