    My six year old is getting started with the Delightful Handwriting curriculum. He is frustrated by the ordering of the strokes of the letters. For example, when writing capital “E”, he is directed to start on the top right, make a side stroke toward the left, continue down with a stroke, then pick up his pencil and make the last two side strokes from left to right. He says he has a different order and direction that he likes to do the strokes in. How important is it that he follow the order given if he produces a perfect letter in the end? Should I insist he follow the directions exactly?

    As long as his handwriting is neat and legible and his pencil grip/hand position won’t cause issues later, let him make them the way he wants. Teach the child, not the curriculum. 🙂
