Reading Workshop

Websites and videos with free downloadable activities and learning for under Fives.

This video is an example of developing the brain/body connections. Development of cognitive skills, such as sequencing, creative thinking and body/ spatial awareness. Excellent for eye/hand co-ordination. Start with two colours, then three at Nursery level.

Incorporate shapes such as circles, triangles and squares if you want this to be a math's activity. Early learning is multi layered and cross curricular.
