My son who is 5 is having trouble writing his letters in school especially the letter s .... we practice at home but he gets upset very easily when he cant get it right. Every morning he cries because he doesnt want to go to school because he has to write. any tips to help him?

Talk to his teacher for one and see what she has noted about his work in class and what she would suggest. When you do practice at home praise him for his efforts. Do not point out his bad spots and continue to encourage him. Also do not make him sit for extended time frames to practice. A kid his age is still very active and sitting all day at school is hard enough without coming home to do the same things.
