Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle
You may have heard your child talking about something called 'Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle' so I thought I would share some information with you about it.
Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle is an early writing program created by a Shonette Bason-Wood, who also created the program Dough Disco. Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle incorporates dance, music and large movements to help children develop the fine muscle control they need for writing. Each week they will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music while dancing along to the music. The children then transfer these movements to floor level and use writing tools (crayons) to make marks on paper.
These sessions are great fun but most importantly help your child to be confident mark makers.
