Squiggle Whilst you Wiggle!
Our Reception class children have been having great fun learning to write with the Squiggle whilst you wiggle Early Writing Program created by Shonette Bason.
The programme uses dance and large movements to help children develop the fine muscle control they need for writing. They will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music. They will dance using this movement and use it to make marks, this could be in foam, on paper, in sand etc. They will then use this action to think of letters they can form that use this shape. These sessions are great fun but most importantly help the children to be confident mark makers.
