Beginning Writing

Hunter really loves "writing" his name in this re-writable tracing name plate I made him.

He loves to go over it again and again, carefully tracing each letter, holding it up in excitement when he's finished, then erasing it and doing it all over again.

He's not really into doing mazes or tracing right now, but he LOVES "writing" his own name.

He's pretty good at it and is very careful that he doesn't go out of the lines, and carefully erases any parts that do escape beyond the border.

Kids who have had the opportunity to brachiate from early on (do monkey bars) can write sentences and stories as early as 28 months. Unfortunately, Hunter didn't have the privilege of such so he's still a little shaky. But this is a great way to start the writing road as it gets him interested in writing and also helps to develop his coordination and dexterity.

"And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them."
Isaiah 10:19
Hunter is 2 years, 10 months old
