Thanks for the response.
She is going to school. She is also interested in writing and can recognized the alphabets.
i just wanted her to practice @ home. And she is 3.4yrs.

Normally frm gr 3. it also depend on where ur child is at. my girl wil be in gr 2 next yr bt is already showin interest in writing in incursive. so as frm next yr I wil teach her at home..no pressure. i told her this yr how important patterns are. and how it helps her with motor skills and that it wil enable her to write in incursive.
