Hey mums..My son is 3.9 years old and he is in nursery right now..He is not able to hold pencil properly and curriculum in his school is running like hell..like every alternate day they are practicing new alphabet and number..Any suggestions from experienced mums how I can I improve his writing practice.Also is he small enough for all this...??

I am doing pattern book to increase the grip..

Hey happens... Some schools run a little bit fast..
But the mitra schools of kids is not yet developed at this age... Take it lightly and help him complete it by holding hand.. even if it's incomplete for some time don't bother.. let the development take its own course..
I still remember doing the homework of my little one as I dint want the tiny fingers to hold the pencil tight..and today het handwriting us much better than mine .. so take it easy..

Hi Shweta. My almost 3 year old daughter is in nursery too... She has also started with writing recently. I just make her practice writing almost every alternative day, on regular practice sheets. Sometimes she cooperates, sometimes doesn't. At the end of the day, she is just a little baby, it's not good to put too much pressure on her. If you think it's getting too much pressure like for your son, you can talk to his teacher about it. I guess 3.9 is the correct age for a child to begin with writing. Having said that, no two children will be same. Some learn fast, some take time. This is no way related to their intelligence. Make study times fun. Encourage him to write more, but don't pressurize. Give crayons/pencil Colors for practice so that he is interested. All the best.

Mahima Atishaya please help

Thnq for tagging me Akanksha Bhuri ...hi Shweta Vyas... It's common some kids don't develop that interest to write like other do and at nursery level kids are still very tiny to adapt quickly to these changes. I would suggest you give your bub a slate and slate pencil at home everyday just to scribble...may be after a week or two sit along to make him write sleeping lines, slanting lines n then alphabets..also try buying him an easel or board ... Sometimes it helps a lot. Don't stress too much he might end up being miserable about writing ... Go slow...👍

revauthi rajamani pls help.

Thank you so much mommies..It was lot helpful...His school analysis much about all this giving marks in evaluation and calling kids for remedial classes...So that made me worried

My son is of the same age ,he is in lower kindergarten, he knows to hold a crayon and colour that's it. At this age the only required skill is to help them hold pencil in tripod position, give him lot of colouring books, don't worry, they will progress
