Growing writers

*Apologies for the duplicate posts, not sure how that happened or why.  Currently waiting for tech support to remove the other two posts.  In the meantime, just ignore them and enjoy the video on this post.  Apologies for the dirty kiddos, but we had a blast this morning.*

Writing & reading isn't just a fine motor skill - it's a whole body workout - from your head to your toes.

1. Visual tracking

2. Core muscles

3. Shoulder muscles

4. Balance

5. Crossing the midline

And the most important of all - JOY.

Part of building strong readers and writers is fostering the joy of doing so, as well as, confidence, the belief that they can, and activities like this also exercises the "I CAN" muscle.

We love messy mornings like these.
