Any preschool teachers or ECE majors here? I have a question regarding letter formation. I am going to google and search, but I thought I would ask here. DS writes his letters from bottom to top, and does well, but I know the way it is taught is top to bottom. How important is it that he learn to form the letters the correct way if he has figured out his own way to do it? He was just playing with his etch-a-sketch a few months ago, and discovered he could write letters. I have tried to teach him how to write, and he can do it, but he just does it his own way.
