At Kindy we are using a program called ‘Writing in the Sand’, it is designed based on “Peggy Leggo”. An Occupational Therapist created this program to help assist students in pre-writing movements. There is a little story that goes with each movement that has a little rhyme to help children remember it in a fun way. Each week will be learning a new movement. The two movements we have done so far are:
- ‘Sideways, sideways:’ This helps with reading and writing direction and sweep to follow the word down the page.
- ‘Tall man and small man:’ This helps when introducing tall letters and small letters.
