Squiggle

Let's be Real-Life Superheroes again!

 

So put on your favourite music and get ready to boogie. 

 

Remember each time we Squiggle we do the dance moves then we use pens on paper or whiteboards.

 

Here are some moves you could use... 

 

1 - firefighter.. climb up your ladder - count how many steps it takes to reach the top.

2 - chef.. stir up that food with big round movements (what are you making?) 

3 - police officer.. run after that bad guy.

4 - soldier.. stand to attention and salute.

5 - paramedic.. drive your ambulance.

6 - postal worker.. walk, walk, walk and post your letters - (remember to get your knees up high for this one)

7 - firefighter (again).. squirt your hose making big shapes as you squirt you water - humps, zigzags, circles...

 

Have you thought of your own actions? 

Remember it is all about big movements, using all of your body. 

 

Now you have Wiggled it is time to Squiggle.

As we squiggle this week we are going to focus on letter formation, remember to take a look at the letter formation videos to help you.

Remember to hold your pen with your best grip

Today we are going to practise 

 

l

t

d

 

We practice the letters grouped this way as they have similar formation

which makes it easier to remember, learn and embed.

 

Today's letters are all tall letters.

l and t start at the top

but don't let d catch you out... it's a tricky one!

You start writing it like  c, then make the stick reach up high before coming back down.

(make sure you watch the formation video for this one)

Remember that you can join in with Miss Brunt

in her daily squiggle sessions on Tapestry.
