Back to school is in less than two weeks for us, and this year is going to be a big year for little man, because he is going to learn something new and very important.
He is going to learn to write.
I can’t believe that the creature that was once my chubby baby is now a four year old learning to write. I can’t believe it. Little man is smart and learned his to say and recognize letters, numbers, shapes and colors early on, but he resisted writing a bit when I first tried to do this with him, preferring to just scribble all over the page. I didn’t want to pigeonhole my son’s creativity, so if he wants to live a life outside the lines, so be it.
But he is now ready and expressed interest in writing letters, particularly his name, and so it’s begun. He’s officially graduated from fat crayons to BIC® pens, and it’s very exciting. I write his name down on a piece of paper with a lighter colored BIC Atlantis® pen, usually the pink or green, and he traces over it with the black pen. He is doing pretty good so far!
BIC Atlantis® makes pens in classic ink colors and feature exclusive Easy-Glide System® ink, with up to 35% smoother writing compared to traditional BIC® ball pen ink systems. They BIC Atlantis® pens also come in fashion colors to give full color variety for endless expression.
For me, the gal who is forever making to do lists, I love BIC®’s new fashion color pens, so I can make my to do lists easier to navigate by color coding my chores. Our drawers were always full of BIC® pens, because they really do write smoothly, and I wouldn’t be surprised if BIC® pens are in most of our homes, or packed into most of our children’s back to school bags.
