Hi ansisari, I teach my girl to write not too long ago and she can write few letters correctly now but I think the most important is to teach her to hold the pencil correctly. Some people waited until they're 6 some 3 but if you want to start earlier than that you should get some pencils ready because they will most likely end up in two pieces. Like mine smile

My little one is just 15 months and we got her a slate and she loves to scribble on it. We also do a little drawing on it to show her what can be done with a pen and a slate. We dont force her at all - its just fun and play.

I began to formally teach all 6 of my children to write at around 3 years old.  My youngest was writing much sooner than that, but she loved to write on her own as early as a year old.  She has gorgeous cursive handwriting and can print beautifully.  Just like everything else you are learning on this forum, younger is better.

Get writing paper and show her how to write the letters and have her trace or copy them.  You can also use a dry erase board.  Kids love to write on those.

Hi ansisari. I found this video in youtube that teaches how to write the ABC's and 123's to 3 and 4 year olds and it seems like a helpful one. I will try this with my daughter in the future:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/omWtg5hLTQ8&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/omWtg5hLTQ8&rel=1</a>

Writing Exercise books may help too:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/h2uhcUAIhBE&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/h2uhcUAIhBE&rel=1</a>

Brillkids have FREE downloadable tracing activitity sheets for writing letters and and numbers too!
http://www.brillkids.com/free-download/activity-sheets.php

If your daughter just likes to draw for now. Maybe you could say for example when she's drawing a zigzag "That zigzag makes a letter Z". That the curve she's drawing is like a letter C. That the circle can be a letter O or can be made into Q.  Or That her drawing of Snake also looks like a letter S in the alphabet. Maybe if she learns that her drawing can make letters she will be interested in learning how to write more letters. Just a thought.  smile

I first gave Kumon Wipeable letters to W when he was about 22 months.  I made sure he held the pen properly and  showed him how to do it.  Writnig quickly became his favorite activity ... now it has competition from typing.

Now he is approaching 26 months.

He has completed the Kumon lowercase work book, and done most of the simple sentances workbook. He loves writing in the peter and jane books (keywords) 1c, 2c and 3c.and rubbing them out and doing it again. He picked up 9c today. Any book that has a space or him to write his name in, he has to do it.. can hardly contain himself.

He can write a few words without me spelling them, like his name, milk, mamma, etc

for quite some time all he wanted me to do was print out dashed letters so he could trace over them

I had no intention of teaching James to write letters and numbers until he was a lot older. Closer to 4. He was  spending a lot of time drawing and scribbling and can draw circles, triangles, rectangles etc.

Then I downloaded a really good writing app for the iPad (letterschool) that showed the ways to write the letters and numbers. It quickly became his favourite app. I made him a stylus to use on the iPad with a chunky marker. And now he is writing all over the place. In his sketchbook, on his magna doodle,Mis chalkboard, a whiteboard, in workbooks etc.
He is not very good yet, but he shows interest so I am not going to hold him back.

James is 30 months now.

Yeah. I had no interest in rushing writing. We do a lot of fine motor (Montessori type) tasks to strengthen his muscles and improve his dexterity  to prime him for writing in a few years. But James decided to take matters into his own hands. When my son show interest in something I run with him.

Hi mypashmina. Is this the same Kumon Wipeable letters your son used?

http://www.amazon.com/Write-Lowercase-Letters-Kumon-Flash/dp/1933241446/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_c

Your son is doing great in writing! Awesome!
I subscribed to your youtube channel by the way.  smile
