"Scribbles may not make any sense to an adult. They look like a lot of lines, loops, and squiggles. But these marks are very important to a young child. They are a child's way of writing her thoughts. Drawing and scribbling are the first steps in using the skills children will need later for writing." - Mincemoyer, 2013 — Alphabet Academy South Twos http://thealphabetacademy.com #reggio-inspired #scribbles #importance #mincemoyer #twos

Writing area shelf. We have decided to embrace the loom band craze and provide a tray of loom bands for children to come and make them (which in itself is an excellent fine motor activity and is really encouraging the children to help and teach each other), and then write instructions of how to make them, to teach other children who don't know. The children are all loving this and are producing some great writing from it! #abcdoes #markmaking #eyfs #continuousprovision

Fun mark making opportunity / Early Years - wrap up blocks with drawing paper for an alternative to flat paper. Watch then get creative making parcels, decorating them and writing their name :)

Children loved the free writing phonics table. Lots of independent word building.
