Drawing and mark making

Drawing and mark making is a great way of developing the skills children will need to learn to write as they get older. At nursery we have been doing some step by step drawing to help children understand they can draw shapes and use these to represent objects. You could draw a picture with your child talking about what you are drawing e.g. “ I’m going to draw a bus, look I need a rectangle shape and then some circle wheels. Let’s add some windows and a door. Maybe we could draw some passengers looking out the windows.”
