While we are still on the subject of handwriting, I have to tell you that I found a stark contrast between my girl, Sasha, and boy, Pio.
I have seen Sasha’s handwriting evolve into one which is as dainty as her artworks.
It took her a bit of time but she was always focused and determined in honing any of her crafts. She can sit for hours.
Pio on the other hand will only write well as long as he remembers your last reprimand. In short, his handwriting largely depends on how fast he can finish it so he can go for a break.
To do what?
To make paper planes and fly them.
To make what he saw Mr Maker made in his last show.
To bike, jump at the trampoline, play with the rest of the boys.
His concentration with respect to structured school work is next to miniscule.
I can see early on an interesting aspect of their learning styles.
I, as their teacher, should learn to adapt and take advantage of these distinct behaviors.
I am seeing the same trend with the next Star Circle batch, Luis and Nina.
They are worlds apart.
