Practicing Letters Involving a Circle

My son Drake(6) has been struggling with writing. He is very creative and motivated but the way he writes his letters is very labor intensive and hindering his speed. When you can't write quickly it takes the fun out of it:( So I set to work helping him understand why we start in a certain position with letters involving a circle. To help him remember we used our reusable sensory mat so that the texture would help him retain it better.

I started by drawing a circle in the center of the paper and put it in the sensory mat.

We practiced each letter several times and talked about the ease of writing it when we start in the right spot. It really helped him and I think having him use the same circle in different ways over and over helped him understand the concept even better.
