Improving provision and outcomes for the children in your setting.

Starting with the theory this book takes practitioners through the developmental stages, looks at gender differences in mark making and then provides some innovative ideas for intervention such as Dough Gym and writing like a Jedi! Alistair is convinced that once practitioners understand the developmental stages of becoming a mark maker (from palm gripping to shoulder pivot) and are given the tried and tested activities to use, they will see a significant difference in progress.   Paperback: 64 pages Publisher: Featherstone Education (11 April 2013) Language: English … Read More
