Learning Activities - Mark Making

Many of our children are preparing for writing by developing their pre-writing or mark making skills. These activities help children to learn the fundamental skills they require as they develop into writers. Mark making sessions focus on developing interest and awareness that children can make marks, tracking these marks and developing their hand-eye coordination.

Here are some mark making activities that our children have enjoyed and that you could try:

Sparkly, Coloured Salt
