Today I would like you to practice mark making, making numbers and letters. Depending how far along you child is in their development your child can make marks, letters or numbers using their fingers, paint brushes, pencils or pens. They will enjoy all depending how messy you want the house to be today!
Ogmore Vale Primary uses a writing scheme called Nelson Hand Writing. This is the style of handwriting that we would like your child to develop. The first stages of this scheme is making patterns and shapes which then progresses onto letter shapes. Parents I've added a quick overview video for for you to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzZA5CeyMQY. Also some hand warm up activities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7QJ4pdNzvo
Here is an image of how the letters should look.
Have a look at this lady parents. She uses something similar to what we use in our class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptFAL-eSvxU It's called Squiggle as you wiggle.
Also here are some handwriting links to YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-OdmQzIm98 Get squiggling letters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsAmz08nBV4&list=PL0k-1Rf8AubvOzq7dsxe2wzOnShQPuPu_&index=4 writing numbers. There are also some lovely apps to download in the app store.
