Is it just me or does anyone else sometimes have trouble interpreting quite what certain sentences in the development matters mean? I am on creative development and what to know whether one of my little Key Cherubs can "differentiate marks and movements on paper" however, I can guess about 6 slightly differing meanings for this - none of which is probably what they ar looking for! I have looked in the "Look Listen and Note" for clues but am still not sure! Can anyone give me a definition/ concrete example?? :o Many thanks x

Snap, I'm afraid my answer will be a bit woolley!. I marry it up with the bit in LL&N which says How one child spontaneously makes lots of spiral marks and movements on their paper, while others may imitate each other's movements. Sooooo I like to see this kind of mark making to be spontaneous and from their own thought process not just doing it because their friend is - i.e. they seek out paper and pencil for themselves to pretend they are a waiter or something in role play

i take it as when a child makes 'marks' on paper, chalk board, white board etc and they explain that the 'wiggly lines' are their 'writing' and the circles (for example) are their family members. I would extend the mark making activity by asking the names of the people in his family and writing their names below the 'circles' :o

I always take it to mean, how children describe their marks and give different meaning to each one, for example 'this is a bird' (squiggly line) and this is a dog (splodge), so they are differentiating between the different marks and for movements, I would observe children describing as they are making the movements, such as making engine noises as they pust the chalk around the chalk board.
