Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle is an early writing program created by a Shonette Bason-Wood, who also created the program Playdough Disco (that we also participate in at nursery). Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle incorporates dance, music and large movements to help children develop the fine muscle control they need for writing. They will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music while holding 'flappers' (bits of fabric) while dancing along to the music.
The children then transfer these movements to floor level and swap their flappers for writing tools (crayons/pens etc) to make marks, this could be in foam, on paper, in sand etc. They will then use this action to think of letters they can form that use this shape. These sessions are great fun but most importantly help your child to be confident mark makers.
We can't wait to participate in this program throughout the new term! :)
