At Home With Writing by Jenny Ackland


At Home With Writing by Jenny Ackland

At Home With Colours is full of learning activities for young children to do at home. Children, from 3 years old, will learn how to use a pencil confidently and neatly through colouring and matching activities. The book uses a variety of fun tasks to introduce new letters, by saying the letter, tracing it and then writing it independently. The fun illustrations encourage using a pencil in a controlled way and improve hand-eye coordination. Useful tips support adults so that they can encourage learning gently - plus there are more than enough funky stickers to reward your child as they complete each activity! This book is ideal to build confidence in writing for a child's first years at school.
