Okay, my patience is running short. Sonshine boy still has no interest in holding a pen & writing letters. I've decided to heck it and let him do tracing.
I made my own alphabet and numeral tracing set. It's not repeated tracing so that i won't bore him. My objective is to let him practise his strokes.
I've so far successfully used it to teach the boy how to write h & s. Whoo hoo, that adds to his small list of letters he can write. I shall continue with this mission till he can write all letters!
