Authored by Heather Greutman

Handwriting is one of the most important skills your child will ever learn in their academic life. But the beginning of handwriting starts long before your child ever learns to write their first letter. In Basic Shapes for Beginners, you will learn the age appropriate and developmentally appropriate ways to encourage pre-writing skills with your toddler and preschooler that are hands-on and fun.

On this 6 week journey you will be introducing the following pre-writing lines to your child:
    Vertical & Horizontal Lines Circle Shapes Cross (+) Shapes Squares & Rectangles Diagonal Lines & “X” Shapes Triangles & Diamonds

Your toddler and preschool age child will have fun learning these basic pre-writing lines and shapes while working on some important developmental skills, such as fine motor strengthening, dexterity, manipulation, and basic letter formation through exposure to a variety of sensory experiences.
