*Remember every child develops at different speeds*

(When doing any writing encourage your child to think about the phonic sounds they can hear and write them.

Dont worry if they dont yet hear and record them all, they might only hear the first phoneme.

Some children will feel confident to attempt to write the letter themselves, others may want you to show them, try tracing it in the air or on the table, others may make marks and tell you what they mean.

Remember the more positive you are about their attempts at writing the more confident they will feel.)
