Writing ideas in Reception?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have just come on here to ask the same question ! I have a spread of children who are able to write some words independently and others who can barley hold a pencil. I have been focusing on activities (oats, rice, cornflour) etc. for my LA to develop fine motor skills but it is my mid-range children I struggle finding independent writing activities for. Any suggestions also gratefully received. Thank you

Hello, I was finding this with my year R's too. Independently they are reluctant to choose writing particularly MA/LA. I sorted the chn by groups and interest and for one week did intro activities with an adult e.g. I had a group of girls into fairies so a fairy was writing to them to organise her party and they had to reply. I then had a fairy box in the classroom for them to check independently and see what writing challenges hid inside. Fairy also sent them pretty pencils! Did the same with a deadly sixty group and a Ben ten group. I did wonder if after the week of doing it with the adult they would keep it up but due to excitement they did. I had also told them that it was a secret and they couldn't tell friends about it as fairy/Ben ten only wanted their help and they had special club member cards! With different abilities I changed challenges e.g. Ben Ten group were teaching Ben to use phonics so only did CVC words, fairy group writng captions and deadly sixty labels. Hope this helps
