How did you help and encourage your toddler to write? Perhaps you showed them how to hold a pencil or maybe you used tracing paper to help, or a white board to make it more fun? If you have a comment about how you helped your toddler learn to write, we'd love to hear from you. Please reply here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

i bought my son an aquadraw to teach him to write/draw. it is safe and not very messy at all.
he is more left hand person. but i keep teaching him to use his right hand. now he can use both hands to write/draw. but his right is not as good as his left.
also whenever i need to write something, i will give him the pen and paper to write/draw.

My husband and I are both lefties so we were hoping for a least one of ours to be one too,but so far no luck.
When Harry was younger he had problems writing as his co ordination and hand skills were poor,so for a while we gave him a sloped surface to write on to build up those muscles in his hands.
Erin's always been a big fan of writing,she spends hours copying books,writing her own stories and doing the illustrations too.I just provide as much paper as she can use.

When Connor was younger, he started of by copying words that i had written on a page for him-things like his name, his siblings names, mummy, daddy etc and then moved to words that he wanted to know how to write.
He too is a leftie. He did try to copy us with his right hand but he found it too hard so I learnt to write with my left hand again (leftie as a child but granny didnt like it!!) so that he had someone to copy. He is now in primary 2 and he loves writing-he likes to make up his own books and writes out the story and does the drawings for them.
