I agree with above. My daughter is at prep and the teachers gave a great info session on this and although hard to explain now, its best to teach them the correct way to write their letters. Eg. Don't say do a circle then line down for a lowercase a- they should be writing lowercase is one fluid motion. She said it can be alot harder to retrain, so to speak, if they are taught a different way and they find it difficult to fix.
I got similar books above from big w and i think even QBD sells them. Teachers also said focus on lowercase letters rather than uppercase.
But so awesome that your little one is keen to learn, good luck with it, sounds like your being an awesome mum and very encouraging
Teach lower case. It's very hard to break the habit of children writing everything in upper case! Find something that uses the same handwriting that your state uses. Reading eggs have good programs and books that go with them also letter land is what quite a few VIC schools use for letter formation. They have sheets and workbooks etc - as far as I know you can get them as a parent and not just as a teacher.
Does he want to learn to write?
He seems to young. Don't force him. He'll learn when he's ready. Don't stress.
He's writing mainly capital letters it seems so I think those tracing sheets will be great for him to start. Thanks heaps for the advice all!
DS prefers pointing out the letters for now but I was also going to look for some books if he was interested. They grow up so fast though!
