Well, OK, she didn’t write her name by herself today. This morning, we practiced together with pen and paper. I tried to get her to hold the pen “properly” but didn’t get far with that. Her ‘S’ looked like something between a “d” and a squared-off “o”. But later in the afternoon, I set her down in front of AlphaBaby, and I pointed out some of the letters, drew her name with stars, etc. Then switched it to typewriter mode, and Sam managed to type her own name. She also typed “mom” and “dad” though we had to prompt the spelling of those as we asked for them, and it took her a while to find the ‘d’. I guess qwerty is one of those things you get used to, but is an unusual sort of thing to try to explain to a toddler. 🙂
