Fine motor development
Children develop their mark making skills from birth and the process of learning to write starts with developing their motor control.
This article ‘The Road to Writing’, published by Teach Early years, explains well how your children develop from birth into writers and how the process is more complex than first meets the eye and how we can support our children in developing their motor skills to enable them to become confident writers in the future.
This website is fabulous for ideas to promote fine motor control and support your child’s writing development (click link for ideas https://theimaginationtree.com/40-fine-motor-skills-activities-for-kids/ )
If you try out any of these at home please share them with us on on the website or on our Making Your Mark Facebook page!
