Tonight Nicholas had his first homework assignment. He was actually pretty excited about having homework. It was super easy and we breezed right through it. He read a short book to me and then completed two worksheets on writing the letters F and M.
His class is learning the D'Nealian form of handwriting which is slightly different than how Nicholas has been taught to write. He already needed to work on his handwriting and now we've got to change the way he's been doing it. Ugh!
The D'Nealian form of writing seems awkward for just writing in print because the letters have a lot of tails that swoop up. It's just not how most people write in print. However, I can see that it is good for pre-cursive writing.
