Learning to write their name:
It is really important that your child is learning to recognise, spell and write their name. There aare many ways which children can learn how to do this which doesn't always involve them writing with a pen and paper such as:
> Painting over their name
> Using magnetic/bath play letters to build their name
> Finding the letters of their name in magazines, papers and catalogues and sticking them on a piece of paper to spell their name.
> Writing their name using chalk on the floor
> Having each letter of their name on separate pieces of paper and they have to spell it.
> Writing their name on an iPad or tablet.
> Using crayons, colour pencils or felt pens to write their name.
It is important to complete exercise throughout the day. This may be going for a walk, riding a bike/scooter or running around in the park. It is great to get out in all weathers but here are some videos for your child to still exercise when indoors:
Make an obstacle course using chairs, cushions, tables, blankets, boxes...anything! Encourage your child to complete a mission to get to the other end and move in different directions.
