Learning to write doesn’t come naturally for all children and I personally feel that the teaching of cursive writing at school makes the process even more complicated and messy.
Introducing Love Writing Co
Albie has been sent a beginner’s pack of Love Writing Co stationery and handwriting practice books to help improve his writing skills.
As a parent, I naturally want to help all of my children to be the very best they can in all aspects of their life. When Love Writing Co approached me to review their products I chose Albie to put them to the test. Albie’s teachers have said for a long time that Albie has beautiful handwriting for his age but he struggles to keep his sizing consistent so hopefully, Love Writing Co will help with this.
How can Love Writing Co help?
Tests have shown that using the Love Writing Co tools and books will:
- Improve writing ability by 95%
- Increase writing speed by 80%
- Improve grip and control by 87%
Designed with Children in Mind
Love Writing Co has age-appropriate pencils and erasable coloured pencils which have been specifically designed to be wider than a standard pencil so they fit comfortably in a child’s hand to increase grip and they are shorter which helps the child to have better pencil control. Just these two adjustments alone really help to improve a child’s writing and increase confidence in their own abilities.
What’s in the complete learning to write pack?
Albie received the learning to write pack for age 3-5 years which includes a pack of 5 writing pencils, 12 erasable colouring pencils, eraser/sharpener, 2 unique alphabet and letter writing practice books and a Love Writing Co gym-style bag to keep everything together.
A bit about Albie
At 7 years old, Albie loves going to school and always wants to do better, he can be quite hard on himself when it comes to his schoolwork despite him doing very well according to his teachers. For this reason, we encourage him to do extra schoolwork at home so that he can keep pushing himself otherwise he can become a distraction to others when he gets fed up or feels dejected.
Albie LOVES to write, he will often sit after breakfast writing letters to friends or making cards to take to school so being given the Love Writing Co pack has been perfect for him.
Using Love Writing Co
There are two books in the pack, one which focuses on pencil control, the alphabet and simple letter formation and one which develops the pencil control further with colouring exercises, letter and word formation and phonics knowledge. Of the two books, Albie has been more inclined to pick up the second book because he likes writing the words and colouring the pictures.
When they have successfully completed a section you can give them reward stickers to say well done. We all know how much children love a sticker!
How we use the Love Writing Co pack
Although I allow Albie to pick up the pack and practice his writing whenever he chooses to, I have also been encouraging him to try to do one page per day either in the morning before school (it saves me reams of paper on all the cards and letters he sends) or straight after school. Just 10 minutes of focussed writing per day has had a huge impact on his handwriting and I am pleased to say that his school have commented to this effect.

I really like the look of this. My daughter really needs help with her handwriting and something like this would really help her.

My eldest daughter loves to write. But, my youngest daughter struggles with her writing and this looks like it would be really helpful for her.

These books would definitely help your younger daughter, it makes the learning fun.

This looks fantastic! My son has just turned 4 and has zero interest is colouring or drawing yet. Finding ways to keep it fun is always a good place to start

I sometimes wonder if it is a boy thing because both of my boys weren’t keen on writing and colouring but my 9 year old now has the most beautiful writing of anyone in the family x

These packs look so lovely! What a great way to encourage little ones with their writing. The workbooks look really fun – and if it’s fun, it’s not going to be a chore to practice ? Great idea!

You’ve hit the nail on the head, it makes learning fun not a chore.

This would be perfect for both my boys. My youngest is in P1 and just learning to write, but is super keen. My elder boy is already in P5, but his handwriting is atrocious so maybe this would help him.

I definitely think these would be of benefit to your boys, it’s surprising how quickly this kind of practice makes a difference.

That looks good, Sebby is a bit of a reluctant reader and writer so would really benefit from this

Yes Albie was last year but I’m pleased to say that he is improving in leaps and bounds x

I love the idea of this. Erin will be starting school soon so anything would help.

Nailing their handwriting is such a key part of the learning process x
