The most common reason why children struggle with poor handwriting is a lack of important underlying motor skills which then hinder them in forming letters correctly. Jimbo Fun is an award-winning, fun and engaging programme which helps children to develop these essential skills and encourages accurate letter formation.

Many children struggle to master handwriting because they lack the basic pre-writing motor skills needed to bring them to the table ready to write. Handwriting is a developmental motor skill much the same as learning to run. Children have to go through certain developmental stages and to have built up the necessary muscles and coordination to allow them to write.

Whilst the majority of children will naturally do this, there will always be a handful of children in every class who, for whatever reason, have not fully developed these pre-writing motor skills. To ask them to perform a high-level motor skill such as writing when they have not established the basics is like asking a child to run before they walk. These children need to be identified early and then placed on an intense intervention programme to promote the development of these skills.

Junior Jimbo Fun has an initial assessment tool for Reception and Year 1 children which aides with this early identification. PLUS an effective handwriting improvement programme which is easy to use and targets the skills needed for handwriting. It comes complete with its own training film and everything you need to complete the programme plus a helpline.

Suitable for schools and parents to use.

Please ensure you select the font style the child is using in their lessons.

Many children struggle to master handwriting for two main reasons:-

  • They have not fully developed important pre-writing skills
  • They are not forming letters using the correct “Movement”

Our award-winning Jimbo fun programme is an intervention that helps to address both these problems in a fun way which children love and readily engage with.

Handwriting is a developmental motor skill. It is widely accepted that when a child learns to run, they must first go through the developmental stages of sitting, crawling, standing, and only then do they progress onto running. Handwriting is much the same, children need to have acquired certain basic pre-writing motor skills before they are ready to write. Whilst the majority of children will naturally do this, there will always be a handful of children in every class who, for whatever reason, have not fully developed these pre-writing motor skills. To ask them to perform a high-level motor skill such as writing when they have not established these basic skills is like asking a child to run before they can walk.

Children who have not developed these skills will often demonstrate this with the following-

  • Wrapping their legs around the leg of the chair or tucking them up
  • Flopping on the table
  • Have writing which drifts from the margin or starts anywhere on the page
  • Poor letter formation and illegible script
  • Writing which has no spaces or floats above the line.
  • Quickly tire
  • Experience pain in their hand
  • Disengaged

Poor motor skills will hinder the child in forming letters using the correct “movement” and if not addressed early this becomes embedded causing legibility problems later.

By the age of 7 years, it is very obvious if a child is struggling to master handwriting and these children need an intense, targeted intervention to address these difficulties before they become further entrenched.

Jimbo Fun is a very engaging intervention that addresses these underlying difficulties. The accompanying instruction film makes it incredibly easy to use. Everything you need is in the “grab and go” case. Suitable for schools and parents to use. It comes with a free helpline.

Please ensure you select the font style the child is using in their lessons.
