Tips for Teaching Kindergarten Writing

There are two main aspects of learning to write; learning the shape of the letters and building the fine-motor skills necessary for good pencil-grip. These fine motor worksheets are particularly helpful for the latter. Here are some other ideas for working those hand muscles:

  • Dot-to-dots, mazes, and coloring pages are a great way for kids to work on their pencil-grip and also build a fun association with the act of writing.
  • Play-dough and other clay-based crafts are a wonderful way to work hand muscles.
  • Make delicious necklaces out of Cheerios. The act of picking up and stringing the small pieces of cereal mimics the hand muscles needed for pencil grip.
