Letter Reversal (Mirror Writing) in the Early Years

Recorded by | Run time: 16 min, 29 sec


Here today to talk about letter reversal, or mirror writing, is Early Years teacher and blogger Holly Mitchell.

Witnessing a student progress through the stages of writing development is one of the most rewarding experiences for an early years teacher. Seeing them move from scribbling to representing their ideas as drawings, to starting to write letters to represent ideas and writing words to show their ideas are all magical stages in a child’s literacy development.

However, it’s natural that there may be a few letter formation speed bumps or obstacles along the way. And one common obstacle that may occur is letter and/or number reversal.
