|Bento No. 293|
In October last year, I discovered my boy began reverse/backwards writing (mirror image) and had raised my concern with his ex-teachers. At that time, I was assured it was part of his brain developments. Todate, after 6 months, he is still having difficulty in writing correctly and even copying it the right way. Worried and feeling unsettled, I searched the internet for answer to help in his learning process. And here are some methods I found and had started with him:-
1) Put a sticker at the left hand corner of the page or on each line to remind him where to start
2) If there is a particular letter that often written wrongly for instance c and s, help him to remember c is like a moon and s looks like a snake
3) Tracing using stencils
4) Build the letters with blocks using legos
Hopefully, he would be able to figure out how to write 'S', '3' and '5' eventually. These are some of the numbers and letters he got confused and would literally tell me he does not know how to write recently.
