Description

Encourage Learning Through Play and Develop Fine Motor Skills in this ‘Roll and Draw’ game.

 Use this activity to:

  • help children practise important pre-writing lines and movements they’ll need for letter formation.
  • help develop fine motor skills.
  • promote visual tracking.

Suitable for the Early Years, include in your fine motor rotations or for small group work for children who aren’t typically motivated by ‘sit down’ activities. 

Ideas for small group use:

  1. Print the provided dice template on coloured cardstock and construct (enough for one per child). Print and place the recording sheets in some Write and Wipe Pockets or plastic sleeves and provide children with whiteboard markers. Roll the dice and copy the patterns onto the recording sheets for a reusable activity.
  2. Print recording sheets on A4 paper. Provide children with textas, crayons or markers.
  3. Put some sand or coloured rice in a tray. Invite the children to roll the dice and draw the pattern into the sensory material.

By incorporating our pre-writing pattern cards into your classroom activities, you can support your students' fine motor development and prepare them for success in future writing tasks.
