I started teaching the twins how to write their names in cursive about 4 months ago. These pictures show their progress.
We have now been practicing strokes within the lines. This has been challenging. I am praying that they do not have vision problems, but it is likely. Both twins have had surgery for strabismus and one of them has had to have it done twice. I am supposed to be patching an eye to correct a lazy eye issue, but have failed miserably at that. The other was diagnoses for glasses by one optometrist, but a second opinion was not in agreement. With the amount of time it is taking for both of them to write in the lines, I am concerned, but hope it is just because they are boys. I am not into drilling them to death, so we only spend a few minutes a day practicing. After they have mastered all of their strokes, keeping in the lines, I will begin to have them write their names on lined paper. In the meantime, I am going to start teaching them how to write their last name in cursive without lines, and then we will move on to the rest of the letters in the alphabet.
Shown on their faces sweethearts enjoying their accomplishments. Love this blog!
