A lot of parents have concerns about their child continuing to reverse letters. It is not unusual for some kids to still struggle with letter and number reversals. Just because they reverse letters does not necessarily mean that they have dyslexia. We really focus on handwriting in second grade, and we are also required to introduce cursive. Ideally, we would hope that upon entering 2nd grade students can:
-spell their entire first and last name
-have their upper and lowercase letters and numbers written correctly and neatly.
Not to worry! We will continue to practice all year. I will be posting more about helpful, quick handwriting tips.
In the meantime, check out this article that might shed some light on why students still reverse letters and numbers.
