Ideas for mark making
Mark making is so important and is the start of fine motor skills and writing.
Some children need more support and encouragement than others to make marks, and some may be particularly worried about activities where marks are to be made on sheets of paper. Generally we would be right in assuming that most of these children are boys, but there will be several girls in any setting who lack confidence with early writing. Often they are lacking in confidence in other areas of development: and particularly with speech and language.
