genny Posted July 26, 2012 Share Posted July 26, 2012 DD is just about to turn 6 in a couple of months and I just can't seem to make headway with printing!!! I'm hoping someone on here will have some insight for me:D This is both of our least favorite subject to do. I'm constantly reminding her to grip the pencil correctly. She gets upset because she has less control this way and she says 'it looks ugly' (she does have better control when she holds her pencil fist style). I think her fingers are just not strong enough:confused: She loves to draw and spends a lot of the day coloring and doodling. I've found she has made up her own way to form letters. I took last year off schooling because I was pregnant and feeling miserable. We've just started back now that newbie's here. I don't know what I should do about her printing! I purchased the zaner-bloser printing book ... I believe it's K (the most basic one). She can't even trace over the grey letters:confused: Any suggestions??? I'm at a complete loss as to how to help her. DH says to just not focus on printing instruction but I feel it's really important. She's advanced in reading ability and I would like to eventually get her into copy work and spelling but she needs to be able to print. Hoping to find the solution here:D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
