STABILO Early Writers Pack
By the age of about 12 or 13 months, most children are able to push a crayon around some paper and make a scribble. Throughout the toddler years your child’s writing and drawing skills will improve in small steps until their pictures become more recognisable and they are able to make the shapes of some letters.
Encouraging your child to draw by making pencils, crayons and paper readily available will aid their development. Start by drawing simple lines in different colours and getting them to copy you. Or draw a simple shape and ask them to colour it in. As your child grows, their vision and imagination will evolve and you can start to create complete pictures together, for example a stick figure family.
It is important that your child enjoys drawing and is excited by what they produce. Don’t pressure them into learning to write too soon as it will turn a fun activity into a lesson – something they won’t be interested in. Make sure you talk to your child as you are drawing together. Hearing the names of shapes and colours will help them make the connection between the two.
The STABILO Early Writers Pack is a bumper package of resources to help you support your child with their early writing skills. Based on extensive research undertaken by experts on behalf of STABILO, our Early Writers Pack helps young children practise and develop the fine motor skills that are the building blocks for learning to write.
The following resources are included in the STABILO Early Writers Pack:
- Comprehensive guidance notes
- Fun nursery rhyme stimulus
- Hands-on activity sheets
- Web-based tools to create your own activity sheets
Teacher Notes, Parent Notes and Activity Sheets are also available to download and all of the resources are completely free to use. You can even create your own activity sheets from a selection of core resources with our Early Writers Activity Sheet Creator.
