Exploring our names

At together time in the studio this week, the children have been exploring the letters and sounds in their names. They have been using and developing their confidence in mark making skills to copy the letters from their names on our large whiteboard in the studio.

The children displayed good fine motor control to scribe the letters of their first names.

The children have been gaining new mark making skills, developing their fine motor skills and learning how to hold a pen correctly. Opportunities for mark making help children to prepare for writing and develops their handwriting skills.
