Grasp Development (Earhardt)

Children develop grasps on crayons/markers developmentally so it is important to see where they are in their development. Coloring/painting on a vertical surface will help with wrist positioning and grasp development.

Using chalk on a chalkboard helps give feedback and working on shapes before letters is beneficial. Once your child has mastered the following pre-writing, shapes, you can move on to LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS. If you do not have an easel, you can tape paper to a wall, Try having your child kneel (tall kneeling) to complete the work to also work on core strengthening and focus.
