As you work with your child on their handwriting and all written work at home, please make sure that they are constructing their letters top/down and left to right.  We ask for your support in providing guidance with your child as he/she works on their written work to ensure that he/she has accurate construction. Brain research tells us that accurate and efficient letter construction, top/down and left to right, increases reading performance by teaching the eyes to move accurately across text, thus increasing fluency, accuracy, and comprehension. So whether the child is writing with an implement or typing on a device, the accurate and efficient physical construction of letters and words is directly correlated to all aspects of reading.
