Many of my kids are highly motivated by using dry erase markers and crayons. ๐Ÿ–

I choose markers when I need a child to slow down and control the marker to address sizing and placement goals and crayons to provide increased feedback when working on letter formation. ๐Ÿ”ค

And I never underestimate the power of the cleanup process...there can be a lot of heavy work and hand strengthening provided by erasing with the whole hand or precision required by using a pointer finger or craft Pom Pom. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ or ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ Next time youโ€™re helping your child, stop to think what would benefit them more and guide them in that direction. ๐Ÿค—
