Happy bank holiday Monday!
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather!
This week we would be looking at making marks. Here are some great ideas to encourage them to be an active writer.
You could choose some items from your kitchen and let the children draw /‘write’ their own shopping list. Let them choose colours to match to the items and talk all about what they are creating.
Another idea is drawing whilst laying on their bellies are a great way to build their muscles in their shoulders and arms to become stronger to control pens easier.
Or with a tub of water and a using what ever you like such as brushes or sponges have ago at “painting the garden,” the children love to do this alphabets.
Colouring books are also a great for encouraging mark making and use of colours!
Hope these are fun for you all
Enjoy Sophie ...
