'What to Expect When'- A guide to child development with ideas on supporting your child's learning at home.
Developing writing skills
Writing in the Early Years is a whole body experience. Children need to develop their large muscles through large movements such as climbing, swinging, pushing and pulling.
Smaller movements using the hands and fingers develop the muscles needed for using pens and pencils. Activities such as threading and playing with playdough are good ways to strengthen these.
You can support your child to develop their skills with pens and pencils by giving them lots of opportunities to draw.
Making patterns using lines, circles and zig zags will help develop letter formation.
