What is Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle?
Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle is an Early Years Writing Programme. It uses dance and large movements to help children develop the fine motor control they need for writing.
Children will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music. They will dance using this movement and use it to make marks, this could be in foam, on paper, in sand etc. Eventually children will then use these actions to think of letters they can form using these shapes.
This week we are going back to squiggle seven- lay down, straight 8.
Can you remember it?
This squiggle is the most difficult for children developmentally. It is the letter S and the number 8. For ease we need to lay it on it's side for formation. The quicker the pace of the squiggle the easier it will be.
