Activities for Developing Readiness and Writing

The process of writing implies finer muscular coordination. It implies the development of small muscle control, eye span and then eye-hand coordination so that children are able to use their physical skills in written expression.

Introduction of activities pertaining to drawing of straight lines and curves to facilitate the skill of writing at a later stage is very helpful.

Art activities like easel painting, finger painting, crayoning, sand writing, clay modeling, tracing, cutting and pasting of various shapes should be introduced.

Tracing equipment in Montessori apparatus should be made use of in developing writing readiness.
