Still a preschooler

Clip to ScrapBook #2

We were reminded that whatever grade we teach, our students will really be at the level of the grade before. That means your GD is truly still a preschooler.

To help with handwriting, do things that will strengthen her fine motor muscles. Have her cut lines on cardstock, make letters out of clay, glue beans to make letters...all those fun artsy activities.

You can put a few beginning sight words on flash cards, but she may not be ready for that. You can strengthen her letter- sound recognition with more fun activities, like finding pictures that begin with A.

They need to meet her where she is and bring her forward. Most importantly, she needs to build her social skills and “school smarts.” The rest will come when she is ready.
