Writing Starts long before children can hold a pencil.Children need opportunities to develop eye-hand coordination, and to understand that ideas can be written and read by others. • INFANTS: At mealtimes allow them to pinch, poke and pick up small pieces of food. Give them crayons to practice scribbling. • TODDLERS: Provide pencils and washable markers so they can practice drawing and coloring. Help them use their fingers to draw in the sand. Let them tear paper, then glue the pieces together. Make playdough so they can roll, tear and cut it. • PRESCHOOLERS: can begin to write familiar words such as their name. Poke holes in cardboard and give them a shoe lace to string in and out. Give them stickers to put on paper. Help your child title their art work or dictate a story for you to write. Write a grocery list together on paper and use it while shopping.For daily learning activities visit: inghamgreatstart.org/ingham-early-learning-calendar/ ... See MoreSee Less
