Liam writes like a doctorFebruary 29, 2016 at 10:59 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Today Liam’s teacher sent home a little toy dog and a notebook. The kids write what they did with “Island the dog” all night long. Flipping through the pages, I realize my kid’s handwriting is…well, lacking, to put it mildly. Some of these kids write neater than I do! Liam’s handwriting is barely legible. Clearly this is something we need to work on. I remember in kindergarten, a girl who sat next to him remarked that he colored like a preschooler. And from then on out he started coloring in the lines instead of scribbling like, well, a preschooler. Tonight I told him he was to take his time, print slowly and legibly, NOT like a preschooler. We’ll see how it goes. Getting him to write ANYTHING is a pretty tedious undertaking…he had to write a report this week, and it was like pulling teeth getting him to write four measly sentences. Ask him to add numbers in his head and he delights in the undertaking. Ask him to write a letter to his friend and it takes him an hour to put pencil to paper. I guess every kid has his strong suit.
