Two days ago we started working in Kumon’s Capital Letters workbook. The first couple of exercises is to practice both tracing and drawing horizontal and vertical lines. Then it moves on to show how the letter ‘L’ is only two lines – one vertical and one horizontal. Same with the letter ‘H’, ‘I’, and letter ‘T’. Dylan loved it and he did so fantastic. I am so proud of him. This was the first time he has ever made letters and now since we started 2 days ago, he loves to draw the letters on his own whenever he can.
I thought perhaps if he had some penmanship paper he could practice writing the letters. This proved to be very frustrating for him because he couldn’t get it that small between the lines. So then I got some blank paper and told him he could make the letters as big as he wanted. And he did and that is what fueled him even more so. Here are some pictures of his workbook tracing the letters and here is his first try making letters on blank white paper. Makes me so proud! Not even 3 years old and making his letters!
