Does anyone else's child do this? My son is almost 9 and since kindergarten has always written his letters and numbers starting at the bottom. He writes them in.
In addition, they may put the tails too high on their “ns” so they look like “hs,” or kids write their letters from bottom to top instead of top to bottom.
When writing from the bottom up you use the larger muscles and It is better to form the letters top down because ultimately the writing will be.
I once read, though, that there is a connection between giftedness and writing letters from bottom to top, so I finally gave up and just let her do it since she can.
When I was a teacher, I taught many students who were writing some or all of their letters from bottom to top (also known as vertical reversal).
