HANDWRITING QUESTIONS: POSTURE


2. Can the student maintain an appropirate posture for writing?

  • a. check the funiture size:  The environment should encourage good study habits and good writing habits.  The chair that the child sits in when writing should allow his feet to be flat on the floor.  To determine how high the desk or table should be, have the child sit in a chair, place his arms at his side and bend his elbows at right angles.  The top of the desk or table should be two inches above his bent elbows.  This will ensure good posture and decrease sitting fatigue. 

During the next Mondays we will explore the gross motor skills needed to have good posture, establish a hand dominance and be able to plan the movements needed for each letter formation.  Stay tuned!!
