You might like to encourage you child to practise their handwriting. I have made a short video below demonstrating how to form the letter 'a' correctly. It is important that your child holds their pencil correctly (see the poster below) and that the letter is formed without their pencil leaving the page.
Don't forget to make this fun! You could use chalk, crayons or felt tips. Use water and a paintbrush to 'paint' the letter onto the patio. There is also the Art of Glow app on the iPad for those rainy days.
