Do you want your child to learn their alphabet but often find it difficult for them to focus? How often do you feel like a broken record, telling your children to practice handwriting?

Well, handwriting is a hard task. It requires a combination of complex skills such as visual, physical fine motor, and planning skills.

Sensory handwriting is using a range of tactile materials for your child to “feel” the letters. This is a great way for your child to practice letter formation without the need of holding a pencil (and in a more fun and motivating way!).

It is also a good idea to learn by incorporating and using a range of senses. For example:

  • Touch (i.e. feeling the letter using sensory handwriting)
  • Visual (i.e. seeing the letter)
  • Auditory (i.e. listening to the name and/or sound of the letter)

This can make it easier for a child to remember and learn their alphabet. This is learning using a “multisensory” approach.
