To be able to write, there are certain fundamental things you work on first. Straight line tracing is one of the first skills.
Jack is visually impaired so "tracing" a line has to take on a different look. Today I used wiki sticks to form two straight line "templates" for Jack to follow.
First I explained the activity and helped Jack to "trace" the line with his finger. Next, we used a fat blue (color of the day) paint marker to trace the lines.
The line on the left was done with me holding the marker and giving a bit of hand over hand assist. The line on the right was all Jack.
