A wealth of ideas to encourage children's self-expression and prepare for learning to write and draw through mark-making.
The journey towards writing begins with children making purposeful marks. Children love expressing themselves in this way, and this Little Book will help early years practitioners and teachers encourage them with a range of media, using mark makers and other implements. By engaging in these activities children will develop fine motor control, hand-eye co-ordination and the movements needed to manage the writing process. Here are hundreds of ideas for mark making, each one photographed in a real setting.
Little Books are particularly suitable for use with children aged between 36 and 60+ months. They are carefully planned to meet the objectives for each stage of development and reflect the latest thinking on the education of young children. Little Books make an excellent start to an exciting journey through learning.
