Highlighters and bright markers are a great handwriting tool!
Comes included in MissMancy’s Handwriting Starter Kit. Available for purchase on this site.
I use them often and many different ways:
- Write a word or letter with highlighter and ask ur child to trace with a pencil. Or make a highlighted dot where u want ur child to start his letters
- For children who have difficulty staying in the lines, highlight the lined paper and say: “Stay in the yellow lines!”
- Always make highlighted boxes to delineate where you want your child to write. This gives them a frame within which they can write (otherwise kids tend to make letters all over the place and different sizes!!!)
- Highlight area to cut and say Stay on the yellow road!
