If you’d like to build your preschooler’s fine motor skills, make sure that you don’t forget about helping them write their name.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD WRITE THEIR NAME
When preschooler’s learn how to write their name, it helps them build a personal connection to words. Learning to write their name instills a sense of importance, and often creates an excitement for learning to write their first letters. Your preschooler will probably start out scribbling on paper, which helps them develop proper pencil grasp.
Your preschooler may then begin to imitate writing words in lines and scribbles, before attempting to form single letters. By the time a preschooler is five they are usually able to form recognizable letters.
