More early writing

The children are completing many different activities in nursery to help develop their hand and finger muscles so they will be ready for writing.  As you can see from the pictures all of the activities you could try at home with your child.

The children draw lines and circles using big body actions as this part of the body develops first.

Then the children work on their fine motor control and draw lines and circles in resources such as sand and shaving foam.

A fun way of building strength in their three writing fingers (tripod grip) is by pinching pegs.  They find this quite challenging but strangely theroputic!!

This is the tripod grip we are aiming to achieve.
