This week’s themes are Mark making, letter formation, labelling and description.
Use pegs and bits around the house like a bit of sponge, pompoms, tin foil etc.
Wrap up items in tin foil/ tissue paper to unwrap
Play pass the parcel, tearing is good for fine motor skills- you could wrap up toys/ books
Cut out pictures
Cut out shapes
Thread pasta, beads, buttons, cereal. Have a go at threading cereal to make a bird feeder
Use tweezers to transfer small items from one container to another
Pegs – maybe help to put the washing out or peg pictures onto string to create a display
Mark Making- make marks in flour, sand, paint with fingers, cars, pencils, paint brushes,
Have a go at shaking flour onto a sheet/ outside and then make marks in it- can you make shapes? Can you make letter shapes?
Make a track for your car to follow, can you make a loop? Can you make a shape?
Use the treasure hunt/ scavenger hunt to find objects to label and describe?
Can you describe what you have for lunch/ snack using symbols/ adjectives?
What items can you find at home which are colourful, different shapes, thick, narrow, long, short. There are lots of everyday adjectives you can use to describe.
Can you think of words to describe characters in your books?
Take a long length of string and tie a knot at the end that's big enough so the cereal can't drop through.
It also works well with a pipe cleaner too
