5 tips to better handwriting


There is no secret to the fact that better handwriting for children not only has long term benefits but also leads toward better grades, better efficiency and consequently an easier time at school. Here are some tips here from us at Genext Students which will help your child significantly improve his writing skills


1. Make Practicing Fun


Offer your child a special pencil or a rainbow of colored ones. Don’t just give her words to copy. Try simple word puzzles, anagrams, a game of hangman, or ask her to brainstorm lists around a theme to give writing practice a purposes.


2. Encourage drawing and puzzle games


In order to develop the physical requirements of writing — holding a pencil correctly, posture, control, dexterity, coordination — the more time your child spends manipulating objects, the better. Even using silverware can help him develop his fine-motor skills.


3. Pinpoint the problem


Common handwriting problems lie in four main areas: letter formation, sizing, spaces between words, and line-alignment. Focus your child’s practice on the letters or concepts that challenge her and make sure she’s using two hands to control the object for writing.


4. Make us of the Right Tools


If your child’s struggling with a regular pencil, try a smaller or shorter, kid-sized one. Ensure he has a good eraser handy so he’s not afraid of making mistakes.


5. Writing Outside the Box


A foggy mirror, patch of mud, or bowl of leftover sauce make great surfaces. Whether your child’s practicing with his fingers, a stick, or a pencil, inspiring his creativity will lend appeal to writing.


We hope that these tips help your child significantly improve an essential skill-sets needed to be possessed to help better ascertain and improve his/her grades. We at Genext Students ensure not only sound learning toward the subject but also help improve grades in all manners possible so that your child has a secure future ahead .
