Making Your Mark - How to Promote a Love of Writing

Why mark making is so important in Early Childhood plus launching a new ebook, Make Your Mark, full of ideas and resources to help educators and parents alike promote and encourage mark making by the youngest of children.

Developmentally, the skill of writing begins with mark making. 

Learning to write is a skill that requires time, opportunity, practice and encouragement. Mark making helps young children to make sense of their world but also opens them up to the realisation that marks and symbols can carry meaning that can be understood by others, allowing them to express their emotions and thoughts through a means other than verbal communication for the first time.

Educators working in the Early Years can help promote mark making many ways and it does not just have to involve just pen and paper! Inviting mark making can be much more creative than that giving children a chance to explore different media and materials as they play and create.

Not sure of where to start or just looking for some new ideas to try?

My new book, Make Your Mark, brings you 30+ projects that will help children develop a love of writing, creative storytelling, self-confidence and compassion. Through play, art, language, and writing this book will help your child make their mark on this world and discover themselves.
