Doodles and Pre-Writing for Littles Part 1
Doodles & Pre-writing for Littles is designed for children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 5 years old who are ready to develop the dexterity and coordination of small muscles as well as the mental focus needed to write.
This level focuses on the strokes and forms used to create letters and common shapes and is designed to help small children develop the fine motor skills necessary for writing. The course is divided into three sections:
- Continuous motions of curves, loops, waves, and spirals. Shapes: circle, oval, ellipse, quatrefoil, and curved triangle.
- Changing directions with straight lines, angles, and zigzags. Shapes: triangle, square, rhombus, parallelogram, trapezoid, pentagon, and hexagon.
- Combining different forms and shapes from sections one and two to create letters or more complex shapes, such as hearts and stars, and finding shapes in nature.
This workbook includes 100 sheets, which is 3–4 sheets per week for a normal school year. Each sheet provides an opportunity for the child to color, improving both coloring and motor skills. The doodles, forms, and shapes the child practices are all connected to nature or other common objects in a child’s world.
