When you start to teach your child to write have a look at the Montessori Reading Writing System

     According to Maria Montessori some children learn to read first, while others learn to write first. It depends on the child. I have the child trace the new words or phonic sounds with Montessori sandpaper letters and

this helps to write the new words in the child’s mind. While tracing the sandpaper letters the child is actually writing with her fingers so this is the start of the writing process. 

      Sometimes teaching writing too early can hinder learning to read in some children. Because writing takes a longer time than reading so it can slow down the child, as she spends more time trying to write.

     If your child is a slow writer just stick to reading. The school system of today has no time for slow writers, but the main problem has more to do with hand strength than slow writing. 

Under the Montessori system the child’s hand strength is built up every day. 

     Therefore when they start to write the child can control the pencil. If your child is having problems with writing, start by building up your child’s hand strength. This simple act seems to eliminate a lot of writing problems. Under the Montessori system the child will start to write by themselves. After tracing the sandpaper letters the child will usually pick up a pencil and just start to write without any encouraging. 

The first part of the writing process is learning to hold a pencil and coloring in different sized shapes. 

     This gets the muscles in the hand and arm ready for writing. The earlier children start to hold and use a pencil the earlier they will start to write. For more information about teaching your child to write see this Montessori Program. I think the Montessori System is very effective for learning to write.

     For more information about phonics courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
