the 'right' way to write
Both of my older 2 sons, ages K and 2nd grade, make thieir "circle letters" backwards - they make the circle from the right to the left, not left to right. When I try to correct them, they say it's easier or the letters look better. They have only started doing this recently.
Am I being too picky? I don't want to harp about making the circle on the a's, b's, d's, o's etc the "right" way if there isn't really a reason.
I thought the reason might be that later, when they learn cursive, if they don't go left to right making their circles, the letters won't come out correctly.
Can someone shed some light? TIA!
