FRANCIS and his tracing skills


Kiko is now 3 years, 3 months and 1 week old today.
He can now easily trace his first name
FRANCIS
and his hand can
draw straight vertical lines
as legibly as he can.




This source says:

"All children start writing by scribbling, an activity most toddlers enjoy. To do it, they must use coordination to hold the crayon, keep the paper still, and apply enough pressure to make a mark on the paper.

As time goes on, with lots of practice, they'll start to realize that not only can they make marks to create a pattern, but by repeating the same movements, they can make the pattern again.

Eventually, with practice and formal schooling, kids learn what are called the conventions of print like writing from left to right, the difference between uppercase and lowercase letters, how to put spaces between words, and how to use correct spelling in most instances."




He can trace shapes 
like circle, triangle, square
and 
rectangle.

Maybe next time
he can write his name in full

FRANCIS DAN RIEL D BERMUDEZ

such a long one
but I know 
he will.

    1. I'm so happy to see him improve his writings through tracing. Sometimes, he doesn't feel like doing his homework and I just have to wait until his ready. It's not proper to force a child his age to accomplish anything yet. He still loves to play and learn at the same time.

    2. Kids will be kids, so let us allow them to learn by their own phase...All work (or learning) and no play makes jack a dull boy.. ^_^ Let him enjoy childhood well sis and really amazing for his age, keep it up!

  2. How cute is that! I wonder when Kiko will see this post after 10 years, he might say, "that's one of my first milestones of my life." Cheers! =)

  7. It really is enjoyable and self-fulfilling seeing kids improve especially with our guidance. From crawling to walking, from scribbling to writing and many more... Ang haba ng pangalan, but eventually he will be writing that completely soon... :D

  23. My little girl is 4 and in Kinder...she knows how to hold a pencil but has no patience tracing...instead, she scribbles...lol. Well, she is going to be a doctor, so that's okay ;)
