I’ve been at home with my son since he was born, and now he is 3.5yo, applying mostly Montessori advices. Now he has shown interest in holding a pencil or pen. My concern is should I continue with the pre writing skills or should I move forward and start using pen or pencil? Thanks
Hi there! At this age, I would still encourage cooling and/or drawing. Use an easel or another vertical surface to get that beneficial shoulder strength and stability. I also love broken crayons at this age because both the width and the length help to foster a tripod grasp.
