Highlighter Letters

The boys still love to trace their letters so I wrote the alphabet along with their names in highlighter and had them trace the letters in sharpie. The sharpie shows every bit of detail about their writing and gave me some good ideas for helping them get better. I can tell where on each letter they stopped and picked up their marker to make a new stroke and this will help me work with them on letters they aren't forming correctly.

 

 Precious little close up shot.
 Both boys are doing so well. You can see James holding his paper still with his left hand while his right hand does the writing. Both boys have struggled with this and are now doing it on their own. Also they can pretty much form all the letters by themselves. Fun times!!
