Joey's preschool teacher mentioned something I thought I would share. One mom asked if she was going to work on letter formation, writing their names, etc. The teacher said that the muscles in the palm of their hand are still developing, and it is very difficult and sometimes painful for kids this age to hold a pencil correctly to write. She said they do other activities to strengthen those muscles like play-doh, and she said that peeling stickers is a great activity for that also. She said there is plenty of time to learn to write next year and in Kindergarten.
I really like his teacher and her teaching philosophies that she has shared so far.
