For instance you can group them like this “a, o, e, c, b, d, p, q, g” and “m, n, h, r, f, i, l, t, y, u”.



Another important aspect is to make the strokes in the right direction. From the very beginning the teacher should guide the students to make the strokes in the proper direction. Teacher should show where to begin a letter, how to move and where to end. This is really crucial aspect for developing good handwriting.
