When teaching a child to learn to write letters, first we learn to make shapes. Also, make writing practice fun. One a month or so I spray shaving cream on the desks and the kids make shapes and letters after a few months they are writing their names (this also cleans the desks). We practice writing letters in the sand (cover the bottom of a plastic shoe box in sand and let them write with their fingers) and I do magnadoodles for a center. I also give the kids worksheets to practice with. There are fonts out there that you can use to make your own and I do this for my classroom kids to practice their names. Look for ideas on preschool teacher's websites as well and visit a teacher's supply store to see if you might get some ideas there.
