Well the festive holidays are over and we are back at work and home schooling for many. So it is time to get back into good habits for the New Year!
So, before you try to encourage your little darlings to sit and write, get them to do a few physical handwriting ‘Warm Up Exercises’. Not only do they help to prepare the hands and fingers for the task ahead, they also help to release any tension that has built up. They are fun to do, which usually brings a smile and often laughter, an added tonic to any learning experience.
The warm up exercises can be accessed through a number of ways:
- Teachers through the content section for the Key Stage you are teaching by clicking on the Handwriting warm up activities button.
- Parents through the “Getting the Most from Our Website” section by clicking on the picture under the Taking the tension out of handwriting title.
- Resources in the “How to Teach Handwriting” section by clicking on the Handwriting warm up activities button.
