Rachael loves reading! She's been reading great since she was 3 and so has Paul but Paul loves to write more than read. Rachael has not been able to write. Every time she tries it just ends up scribbles. She tries but she gets frustrated and refuses to do any more. We've been working on her letters all day, same results, she just gets frustrated. Then I thought of something. Robert has several left handed people in his family. I couldn't remember if Rachael had ever tried with her left hand so I showed her how to hold the crayon in her left hand. We have letters!!! She's whipping them out like crazy. It's 1:00 am and she won't go to bed because she wants to keep writing her letters! Is there anything better than the look on a child's face when they realize they really can do something they thought they couldn't?
Now how the heck did we get to 5 years old and miss this?? I'm going to watch everything she does now to see which hand she uses.
Cute, cute! What a sense of pride she must feel. Mabye she's ambidextrous. Since he was little, my husband has been writing with his right hand (though he has terrible handwriting! Maybe I should suggest he try with his left.) but he plays sports with his left. He bats, golfs, etc. with his left. Interesting.....
Aww, I'm so glad she discovered her writting skills. My youngest is a lefty. He'll be 4 in October and we've noticed his left handed tendencies since he was 2. It's really odd to us though, because we are both right handed, our other 2 boys are right handed, and there are no lefty's in either of our families (that we know of). I hope she continues to enjoy writting!
Happy Homeschooling Mom to:
YAY! My oldest son is a lefty. My mom is a lefty, my sister is a lefty (I was the odd righty, lol) My youngest son, seems to be able to use both atm, but that could still change, I say that, because Preston used to be able to use both equally, but he now preferrs his left, so I have dubbed him a lefty, lol. Congrats to your DD!!!
