Beginning today, I start the series #ThrowbackThursday where I will be reposting posts from the past years.
Today’s post is from December 2014 where I wrote about the efforts I was making with Dhruv to deal with his difficulty in holding the pencil correctly and his lack of interest in learning to write.
Dhruv started nursery in Nov first week. He is now three and a half years. Until one month back he had been showing no interest in writing or colouring. Give him colour pencils or crayons and he would place them in his digger making them look like missiles. Hand him over a pencil and a notebook and he would give it back to us asking us to draw cars, buses and trucks for him. On our asking him to take the pencil and scribble on the paper after showing him how to do so, he would turn away making himself busy in his toys. I thought may be if I started writing my stories on paper or colouring pictures in front of him everyday he might pick up interest. That, however, did not happen.
