A couple of months ago I blogged about how we were a little worried about Christopher writing a good amount of his letters backwards... especially the letters in his name!!! Anyway, I did casually ask my pediatrician and he basically said the same thing that I had read and that people commented:) I was concerned a little TOO Early:)
Since then during writing practice I have been gently correcting him, letting him trace letters and having him play with letters (frig magnets)!! And for a little while we noticed he'd write and recognize the letters BOTH backwards and forwards!!
Then today I had him write his name on a little matching worksheet that Grandma gathered from a kindergarten subbing job:) I thought it might be good for him to start writing his name on some od his work to practice!! And to easily sort from Anna's work:)
To my surprise he wrote his name!! All of the letters correctly and I thought I was helping him with the spelling until I looked down and realized he was letters ahead of me!! He's going to be a very interesting and fun kid to homeschool... if he'll sit still long enough:)
