It is no secret that handwriting is a dying art in the digital age. However, that does not mean that it is not still important. In fact, there are many benefits to handwriting, especially for young learners. For one thing, it helps to develop hand-eye coordination.

In addition, it can improve fine motor skills and penmanship. Writing by hand also encourages creativity and thinking outside the box. This handwriting page is a great way to help your child develop essential skills and letter recognition. So what are you waiting for? Get your little one writing!

Letter S Maze

This letter maze is a unique way to help your child improve their fine motor skills and learn to recognize letters. To complete the maze, your child will use a crayon or marker to color their way through the winding path.

This requires them to control their hand movements and use small muscle groups in their fingers and hands. As they navigate the maze, they will also be looking for uppercase and lowercase letter S. This helps them to start recognizing and differentiating between different letters of the alphabet.

The more they practice, the better they will become at identifying letters!

Hi Rachel! So sorry it's not clear how the system works. It's kinda like adding your email in the form is "signing in" so the system knows whether you're already a subscriber or not. Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions about it!
