Writing

We introduce our children to essential pre-writing and fine motor exercises

We introduce our children to essential pre-writing and fine motor exercises that support the hand muscles to write, scissor, and draw while developing eye-hand coordination. Children are introduced to lines, curves, shapes, letters, printed numerals and words. Writing is introduced every day with a combination of fine motor skills, games and activities, sensory and art experiences, drawing, and one-to-one writing. Children begin their day by practising their fine motor skills as they print their name for our community chart, engaging in the printing process themselves and practising the left to right progression important for later writing and reading development.

Our school utilizes the “Get Set for School”program by Handwriting Without Tears, which is a wonderful complement to the existing curriculum at Parachute Express. The “Get Set for School” program helps young learners gain the skills and experiences they need for lifelong learning success. Our hands-on curriculum focuses on readiness & writing as we engage our preschoolers in singing, dancing, coloring, building, and exploring on a joyous journey to kindergarten. This program incorporates child-friendly teaching strategies, such as using music and movement to bring lessons to life, and multisensory manipulatives to build fine and gross motor skills. Our readiness and writing lessons teach body awareness, cooperation, taking turns, listening, crayon grip, drawing, building, letter and number recognition, capital letter and number formation. And most importantly, this program is filled to the brim with so much fun!
