My 5 yr old writes a full sentence right to left and even the letters are backwards is this normal? Topic: Ways to write letter d
July 16, 2019 / By Innogen
Question: this happens when she is writing a letter to us or anytime she write on paper with out lines should we be concerned she is in kindergarten and any papers that come home are correct. its when she is here and writes at home. the teachers have not mentioned anything to us about her writing. she is above average in everything. her vocabulary is that of a 7 or 8 yr old she is only 5 and can read a book she sounds letter out and can also spell so i dont think she has dyslexia. but concerned it maybe something.

Has she been in school to be taught the "right" way? If not, I'm not too concerned. If she has been in school I'd be very concerned! Talk to her teachers to see what's been done to help correct it. They should be asking your permission for an evaluation soon if they haven't already! Some letters backwards are normal at this age, lots (or all) are not.

At her age this is normal. When I was in first grade I still had a tough time with "b" and "d". The teacher mentioned it to my mom at the parent/teacher conference. I got over it and turned out to be the strongest reader in first grade. I can't remember if my own kids did this but they probably did. I think I just saw it as not a big deal and didn't worry.

Look up some Chinese characters. See if you can learn to write them the right way by looking at them a couple of times. Chances are, you can't. this is perfectly normal at this age. Leave the kid alone.

Does she do it all the time or occasionally? My son did the very same thing, say every third paper he wrote, he also would write like this: ih ym eman si samohT (Hi my name is Thomas) His teacher said it was normal. I never checked with the doctor and by the middle of first grade it completely went away. He is in fifth grade now and an "A" student.

if she is left handed this is normal,I did the same thing when her age and learned from my mother how to do it the right way,keep the paper but show her the correct way to print her letters. don't allow anyone to change which hand she writes with,will complicate things by messing up her thinking.

I would think that you were very important. I think that the only reason you are not his girlfriend is because it probably scares him to death about being in a long distance relationship. If the guy takes time to write to you then that is a sign that he really cares for you. I have a feeling that he feels more comfortable when he writes to you. If you have feelings for this guy then maybe you should talk to him. Try to find out how he feels and let him now how you feel.
