Teaching Handwriting — Capital Letter Basics | Parents

You should teach your child capital letters
first because they are easier to master than lower case ones. It’s important to use consistent
language. The 4 terms I use for handwriting without tears they don’t need to know are
big line, little line, big curve, and little curve. Once children learn that these 4 shapes
can make up every capital letter, learning their formation becomes natural. Always have
your child start his capital letters at the top. This is a more efficient approach because
beginning every capital letter at the top helps kids develop good writing habits early
and eliminates the thought process, so it becomes automatic. Remember, capital letters
are all the same height.
