2010-07-12 - Monday Muse - Paper
My children spend a lot of time with their pencils and crayons. Quite a bit first thing in the morning, mid-day as the yard heats up, and before bed as they unwind.


Recently my almost-five-year-old has been working on her letters. Little by little.

So lately I’ve taken to making dot-writing for the girls. And, although it’s as simple as could be, it occurred to me that I could share it here. Yes, it’s also kind of fun.



And it takes just a few moments longer than writing the actual words. You just write each letter a little larger as little mini-lines or dots.


Our favorite is surprising the girls with fun statements like “good job” and “happy day.” They get so excited to find out what they’ve just written!

So, anyone else use this method with their children in learning writing? What other methods are people using out there?



P.S. Anyone else get my Pee Wee Herman reference in the header? :)
