What are the six multisensory methods for teaching handwriting?

Handwriting demands excellent motor coordination and abilities in addition to the ability to form letters on paper. If your child has trouble writing, consider some of the multimodal approaches listed below. 

  1. Use "bumpy" paper with dark ruled lines. When writing, if your children have difficulties remaining within the lines, you can search for the sheet of wide-ruled paper with dotted lines in between the bold top and bottom lines.

    Your kid will be able to recognize obstacles and prevent letter drift thanks to this. The top and bottom lines can alternatively be traced using glue. Your kid will "bump" the lines with her pencil as your kid writes after it dries.

    Kindly inform your kid that larger letters, such as the letter T, belong on the top line and that smaller letters, such as the letter c, belong between both the bottom and middle lines.

  2. Map out and run mazes. Teaching handwriting by tracing is a successful method. You can assist your kid build fine motor coordination by letting your kid trace forms and zigzag patterns from left to right, top to bottom, or through wavy and curved lines.

    Additionally, your kid will be taught how and where to move from left to right and top to bottom as a result of this. Mazes might enable your kid in developing their ability to remain in a certain area.

  3. Attempt "Wet-Dry-Try." You may be familiar with Handwriting Without Tears' Wet-Dry-Try app. However, you can also perform a low-tech variation of the activity.

    A little chalkboard, a sponge cut into cubes, and some chalk is all that is required. Try squeezing a sponge cube so it isn't dripping with water after having your kid moisten it. To provide your child with a model, write an open letter on the chalkboard.

    Next, instruct them to use a damp sponge to write the letter. A dry sponge should then be used to trace it. Lastly, have them use chalk to finish the letter.

  4. Employ a "Spacekid." Words on the page may not line up properly for certain children, especially those who have visual-spatial difficulties.

    A "Spacekid" can assist your youngster if they place their words too close together or too far apart.

    Your child should set their Spacekid down at the conclusion of each word as they write. They should begin the subsequent word on the opposite side of the Spacekid device.

  5. Attempt writing with sensory freezer bags. Some colored hair gel should be added to a sealed bag that is about the size of a freezer. Make sure it's completely closed by sealing it firmly and covering it with tape.

    Having the sack flattened out on a table requires your child's assistance. Teach them to try writing words or letters using their finger or the eraser tip of a pencil. They will be able to sense how the letters are shaped thanks to the hair gel's resistance.

  6. Display the sky, the grass, or the earth. Your child could struggle to make her letters the appropriate size. For instance, she might write dOgS rather than dogs. Your child will learn about letter size through this activity using hand positions.

    To begin, practice saying the word boy. Your child will tip her thumb upward for big letters like the letter b. They might form a fist to represent grass for small letters like o.

    Additionally, they tip their thumb downward for the ground for moving down characters like y.

What is necessary knowledge for all first-grade teachers?

Margaret Berry Wilson discusses the specific developmental traits of first graders in a friendly, presentable manner while providing helpful information on subjects like:

  • the setting up of a circle, desks, and tables

  • supply selection and storage

  • setting up a day that is centered on the child and teaching them everyday rituals

  • arranging unique tasks and outings to enhance education and foster interaction

  • recognizing the unique issues that first-grade parents have and figuring out the most efficient means of communicating with them


What do first-grade writing skills imply?

Children can convey their ideas, imagination, and individuality by writing. Children develop their capacity for critical thinking, arrange and express ideas, and end up making purpose clear and lasting in this way on an essential level.

Children become good readers when they learn to write properly. First graders write frequently throughout the day to share their thoughts and passions; children are writing for a specific reason through stories, diaries, and checklists.

As they become older, kids can read their own writing, therefore reading aloud to them is recommended!

Children are able to print legibly and omit the space between words. First graders are capable of creating short, full sentences, and they are starting to comprehend when they should use upper case letters, periods, and commas.

As early as the first grade, students start to incorporate "tale language" into their personal writing, for example, by using expressions like "happily ever after" and "once upon a time."
