Pencil Control/Letter Formation
The large (A4) alphabet letters below are very useful for printing and practising letter formation. Print s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g and use these to practise writing these letters in the correct way.
For children who are in the early stages of mark making/writing go big and use large sheets of paper on the floor. We are continuously looking at ways to develop the muscles needed for a good firm pencil grip. A nice idea is to tape felt tips with the nib facing downwards to cars. Place a large sheet of paper of roll of wallpaper on the floor and encourage your child to push the cars up and down to make marks.
