Kindergarten Writing

A snapshot of kindergarten writing in black and white focuses on the writing without the distraction of colour. I share with you the writing of a child who could barely form letters at the beginning of the school year. Stronger fingers and a willingness to practise have led to better formed letters and words.

In grade 1, the letter formation will improve and, in years to come, the writing will be more practised and noted down with ease. As a teacher, I revel in seeing the progress of this child and the knowledge that I have helped children on their writing journey.

Do you often see young children’s writing?

  1. I have a 5yo daughter who has learned her letters over the last year or so. I remember in December, she was still very frustrated by the “s” – now she does them (imperfectly) with ease. It is amazing the amount of work it takes to learn to write. We take so much for granted as adults and forget so many of our struggles and the dedication it took to be able to do the many day-to-day things we do.


    1. What you say is so true – it has been so long ago that we learned to write that we have forgotten how difficult it can be for new writers. Even my 13 year old daughter has mentioned that it seems such a long time ago since she learned this skill.


  2. My granddaughter is 7 now but I remember so well when she was learning her letters. She LOVES reading and used to pretend to read the pages before she actually could.Now she’s into Harry Potter! Time DEFINITELY flies Colline. Good for you for helping young minds to reach their potential.


  3. I can only imagine the pleasure and joy you must see, when a young childs first attempts progress to the stage of understanding and comprehension of their ability.
    You are to be commended Colline.
