Lulu Learns to Write: A Graphic Metaphor
Lulu Learns to Write is a graphic metaphor written by Rita M. Cevasco, M.A., SLP, and illustrated by Tracy Molitors. Imagine each separate writing skill as a box.

As Lulu grows and learns, she needs less cognitive workspace for her foundational skills, allowing more room for higher-level thinking.

One way to practice is to turn the letter into a word picture to help your child remember the sound!
