Soft start activities are important to help ease into the school day. These help with pre-handwriting skills, strengthening hands, grasp etc and most importantly they are fun.
These type of activities may be going to the Dough Disco, which we do regularly. That is great fun! It might also be the ‘Cheerio Challenge’ where the children have to try and thread cheerios onto a skewer in a set time. Then, they have to try and get faster and improve on this skill. They love it. Here are some pictures.
