Well, as compulsory education doesn't start here until primary school they literally start from zero. The old tabula rasa blank slate educational philosophy and all that.
So at school literacy classes start with the alphabet, right?
Zig zags and swirls, right?
They don't even start with how to hold a pencil.
What on earth is before that?
Why the correct posture for sitting when writing of course.
It goes a little like this- feet flat on the floor, back ramrod straight and tummy sucked in. (Because so many 6yo's have guts, right?)
And they practice that.
So it has taken a lot of days of school to work through the steps to finally being able to write our names.
About two weeks in fact...
And so with much tada and tadum!
