Hi All, I was wondering what you all are finding to be the penmanship expectations in your kids' kindy classes. DD1's fine motor, visual motor, and motor planning skills are at about a 48 month level right now (she's almost 5.5), and writing lowercase letters as small as the teacher wants them is very difficult and frustrating for her. Are you finding that your teachers are really focused on penmanship or is ours really old school? DH is going to meet with her next week to talk about how things are going--I know DD's been expressing frustration in class. Both our OT and I have asked that the teacher be patient with this. I feel like I don't know what a kid with typical fine motor skills is capable of, so I don't know if I'm being overly defensive about this. DD is working really hard to write the letters the right way, she just has a hard time making the lowercase letters half the size of the uppercase ones. I know this is a weird question, but I just feel overwhelmed with all the writing practice that we've been having to do.
