When children are learning to form a new letter, it is helpful to begin with large movements such as forming the letter in the air; have children use a sweeping movement with the entire arm, not just the hand. This initial practice should emphasize learning the motor pattern with correct formation of the letter (e.g., as discussed for the letter b above) rather than writing the letter on paper with perfect legibility or size.
Learning the alphabet can be fun, and teaching the alphabet has never been easier. Fortunately, these games aren’t just for those learning English as a first language; ESL language (English as a Second Language) learners can benefit, too!
Focus initially on learning the motor pattern rather than perfect legibility or size.
