K does not enjoy handwriting lessons, or handwriting workbooks or being shown how to write letters. She does however spend 2 - 3 afternoons a week, hand writing letters to the family. She will ask me to write the words and she copies in her own writing.
She then proceeds to label each envelope and post them in our letter box. When dad gets home she will always remember to remind us if we have checked the mail that day!
Yes we have reverted back to captials, without captials she will not write at all FULL STOP. I will not have her spending time crying over trying to write in lowercase. I am more concerned that she is actually writing and she loves writing letters to us.
In saying all of that I have been looking very closely at Handwriting Without Tears for her, I think it might just be what she needs. I'll keep you posted.
