Why handwriting fails without proper Core Strength and Hand Strength
By: Integrated Learning Strategies
If a child doesn’t have good
control of their core
, they often slouch, have bad posture or can barely lift their torso to hold their body up.
This is especially important when kids need to copy notes from the chalkboard and when they need to stabilize their body to write.
Remember… ✅ The core
the head, neck and shoulders. ✅ The shoulders
the arms, elbows and wrists. ✅ The wrists
the hands and fingers.
Pick a few activities or exercises that target each area while still making it fun and playful for kids. Children are more likely to engage in exercises that provide a playful element.
