Preparing a hand for writing according to all rules
On the development of fine motor skills and muscle wrists young parents have heard from the moment the child's birth. Newborns are offered special toys that give a variety of tactile sensations, and already closer to the first year of life, one must be engaged in drawing and modeling - that's what experts in early development say. So it turns out that, following all the recommendations, we prepare a hand for the letter from the very birth? But how to deal with the child right before the school?
Development of fine motor skills
To train the muscles of the hands should not only for the sake of making the handwriting even and beautiful. If you do not give enough time to such activities, the child will in principle be very difficult to learn how to write, to hold a pen or pencil correctly. Develop fine motor skills with any creative activity. With their help, we prepare a hand for writing from an early age. You can paint with any colors, using your fingers, brushes or stamps, molding from plasticine, clay and salt dough, making appliques. Encourage the child's interest in any kind of creativity, offer games with small figures, sort the groats together, try stringing the beads on the fishing line or sewing on the buttons.
We prepare a hand for writing: how to hold the pen correctly?
Preparation for the school is impossible without instilling in the child the skills of proper handling of writing materials. Get the right handles - the most simple ball-type standard size, with detachable caps and no latches. It is better if the rod is thin enough, and the ink - blue or purple. The handle should be located closer to the tip of the middle finger and stick to the thumb and index. Avoid unnecessary muscle strain. The simplest exercises from the category "prepare your hand for writing" - try to draw lines and draw simple shapes on a piece of paper. When writing, the hand rests on the extreme joint of the little finger. Watch for pressure, show your child with pencils of any softness that you can draw with varying degrees of effort.
In any training a practical part is of great importance. Teach your child to hold a pen or pencil in a proper way easily and quickly if you regularly give him the opportunity to draw. And let them first just doodle and crooked lines, the main thing is to try regularly to leave traces on the paper. Useful types of drawing - painting the outline and hatching. They are often even included in serious courses of general development and art education, from the category "We prepare a hand for writing (6-7 years)".
Another useful exercise is drawing. First, draw a simple shape or picture and ask the child to repeat it. Over time, you can try to draw some shapes and images from life, showing objects and compositions from them. It is useful for the development of the muscles of the arm to outline images along the contour. For maximum effectiveness, exercises in drawing can be combined with gymnastics for fingers and brushes.
Why do I need a prescription?
Learning a letter begins with the implementation of special exercises. Today on sale you can find a huge number of working copy-books. These manuals help you learn how to deduce letters and numbers. All of us, parents, prepare the child's hand for writing with the help of various finger games and creative activities. However, one can not do without a prescription, and what is especially convenient is that they are issued today for children of all ages. As soon as the child shows interest in drawing, you can try to buy a workbook for the youngest. The tasks in it will be simple - draw a curved line, draw a geometric figure along the contour. Many children like these activities, and they gladly try to outline, paint over, draw on points every day.
Having learned to deduce exactly and carefully the various lines and simple figures, the child in the future will not have difficulty remembering the shape and appearance of the letters. Another interesting activity can be described as an exercise "preparing a hand for writing on cells". Take a standard notebook in a cage and try to draw various drawings using standard lining. Ask the child to repeat for you or to invent their own patterns and pictures. It is not only interesting and fun to work with such a home-made words, but also more useful than with a printed one in a printing house. Arbitrary drawing allows not only to train the hand, but also to develop thinking.
