I teach handwriting in lots of ways. We write in play dough, we write in wet
sand, we use a pen on paper on a pile of news paper or rubber board, we work
on hand strength and memorizing the steps to writing the letter, we use hand
writing practice pages that I have a reader look at later. It isn't easy,
but it can be done. Sometimes I would work with the group doing fine motor
activities why the teacher worked with the kids on the actual paper writing.
She has more problems than handwriting I can promise you.
"Play is to early childhood what gas is to a car," as it's "the very fuel of
every intellectual activity that our children engage in."

Subject: [nobe-l] working with younger kids
Hello, I applied to work with kindergarten kids part time as I complete my
certification. The person I was talking to said I would not be a good fit
because I cant teach hand writing skills or correct their papers because I
am blind. So I am asking if there are teachers who have to deal with this
issue. And how do they teach hand writing to sighted kids. Heather
