Preschooler Writing Practice

I bought this huge dry erase board about a month ago at a yard sale. I knew I would use it with Z to practice writing and drawing, but haven't touched it since I bought it.

Z has been getting really good at tracing and has been trying to write things on his own, so I figured it was time to start practicing.

As soon as I brought out the board and the markers he lit up, he loves this stuff!

I drew a line down the middle to split it and I took one side and he took one side.

After I wrote a letter, he would write the same one on his side.  If he had a problem with a letter I drew dots for him to connect.  He did a great job for it being the first time writing every letter!

We got through the whole alphabet and he loved doing it. 

Sometimes all it takes is doing something in a way you know they will like for them to respond well to it.

  1. Great idea! Sometimes just the novelty of something new will inspire them to work on something they otherwise would have no interest in. My 4-year-old is just starting to be interested in learning to write letters.


I look forward to your comments, they make my day!
