Writing and Prewriting Skills 3.5 yo

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. :slight_smile:
