“We all know alphabets, so why not we just write the alphabets on a paper and get our children to practice them?”
If you are thinking like that then you are not alone. However I am sorry to say that it is the wrong approach. We need to write the alphabets as per the method approved by the education board.
Look at the alphabet above. Its got numbers – ‘1’ is where you start from – so the child starts at ‘1’ and goes along the direction of the arrow. And then the child goes to ‘2’ and moves along the direction of the arrow next to ‘2’. And then finally the child goes to ‘3’ and moves along the direction of the arrow next to ‘3’
One of the many benefits of getting children to practice the letters in between the lines is that you are teaching them about proportion of the lines.
