Before I write one myself, has anyone produced a handout for parents about mark-making? I want to cover things like what sorts of activities help to develop fine motor control, how to encourage an interest in writing, etc. etc.

Has anyone done something similar? :o

Yes, good idea Peggy.

It will be a very handy addition to the information we give to the parents with children starting school in September. Actually on thinking about it quite a few of the children with another year to go!

Thanks Beau!

Definitely one to put in the pack to hand out to parents in September. There is so much more to mark making then just writing their names. Any more ideas for a Welcome pack for parents please?

Leaflets produced by Early Education include one about mark making for parents - worth getting and then using it to help produce your own. (free to order just pay postage or downloadable from site)
Here's the link

http://www.early-edu...mp;ref=leaflets

The other leaflets are all good too.

I have produced a display for parents on this subject - I will try to attach the text for you, having been assured it's OK.
