We get to have soft start activities in the mornings before we begin any writing. Sometimes our learning begins outside, sometimes it begins inside. Here are some photos of us with a soft start activity. This helps us to build up our fine motor skills and is a pre-handwriting activity. It helps to strengthen our hands/fingers to help us with our pencil grip, writing etc. We loved it. What we had to do was build a tower using lego, but we only had a set amount of time to do it in. Then we got another go at it, the same amount of time and we had to see if we could get more blocks built on our tower to make it even bigger.
Have a look at the concentration while we were doing it! It was great fun and we rose to the challenge!
