Writing Numbers and Letters

Hello readers ,

Writing is an essential part of our lives. We write without even thinking about what we are doing or how we are doing it. Children begin to write from an early age starting from mark making to letter formation to writing their name to sentence writing. As a parent we can make this a fun activity for our children to do. Its a well known fact that all children have their off day but its important to not give up and try again another day.  Below are some ideas on how to make writing fun.

1) Flour play. Spread some flour on a tray and encourage your child to draw letters or numbers in the flour. When they draw a letter repeat it to them so they can begin to learn what letter is what. This is a fun sensory activity for children to do and it will keep them engrossed.

2) Finger paint. Put a small amount of paint andnlet your child draw numbers and letters using their fingers and the paint. Ensure you keep the colours bright and engaging to prevent boredem. Show your child some template examples and let them choose what number or letter they want to draw.

3) Shaving foam! What child doesnt enjoy shaving foam play. Give yoyr child a paint brush and let them explore the texture of shaving foam. Encourage them to draw or write numbers in the foam using their paintbrush. Be sure to have lots of fun!!

4) Playdough Playdough! Use your playdough to imprint letter or number stencils to the dough. Tell your child what number or letter they have just made so they are understanding what numbers and letters they are making.

These activities are all to encourage fine motor skills and literacy and numeracy skills. Your child will love learning through play and exploring new textures.

Happy Learning

Food for thought.x

 Hello readers  This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.  We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do. This image was chosen from  Happy Friday All x Love Mamma x
