The Joys of Writing: How Scribbles Are Leading to Letters
Your child has likely been scribbling for a while, and those scribbles have become more and more controlled, perhaps starting to look like shapes. He may enjoy playing games that involve writing, such as sending a postcard, making a shopping list, or taking a restaurant order.
