Practice Prewriting with Movement
GRAB YOUR CHALK - LET'S MAKE SOME PREWRITING LINES
Lately I have had a couple requests for writing activities. This preschool activity is great, because your child will be writing and MOVING.
What do I mean? Well, for starters, check out the Stages of Writing. It all begins with lines.
Do I need to mention this activity also got us out of the house? If you follow us, you know we are ALL home during the day and have a newborn. -Some days move fast and some days I cannot keep them from bouncing off the walls and wrestling. oy!
We LIVE for these simple outdoor activities to get some fresh air! Do we also need to mention the elephant in the room that our driveway could use a serious power washing?!
Simple Set Up:
Grab some chalk.
Draw some lines.
I added stopping points and arrows for interest. (More what to do with these below under extensions)
Supply: (yes, only one supply!)

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to follow two step directions. Meaning, complete two tasks at one time. Read below how this gets integrated.
Get Creative with Lines!
Call out movement tasks at each stopping point.
- Jump 5 times
