Each day we have numerous activities that help with developing pre-writing skills. I’ve shared many of them in my collection of squeezing activities. Before preschoolers can start writing, the muscles in their hands and fingers must be developed. This is why starting with our toddlers, we provide playful activities that build the strength that is needed to hold writing tools. Do-a-Dots are a favorite in our classroom, so I decided to try them on a large dry erase white board that was placed in our reading and writing area.
