What is Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle
It is an Early Writing Program created by Shonette Bason.
Squiggle Whilst You Wiggle uses dance and large movements to help children develop the fine muscle control they need for writing. They will learn a new gross motor movement to a piece of music. They will dance using this movement and use it to make marks, this could be in foam, on paper, in sand etc. They will then use this action to think of letters they can form that use this shape. These sessions are great fun but most importantly help your child to be confident mark makers.
Shonette Bason is the Mary Poppins of motivation for Early Writing. Its all about mark making and Shonette will show you how to develop children's writing in a fun and exciting and extremely active way. It will make you giggle with your child and want to make marks immediately.
