Before starting to work on letter formation, or even the pre-handwriting patterns, it is a good idea to help focus the body and brain, in a fun and relaxed way, on the activity that it is about to be performed.

The exercises only take a couple of minutes to complete. They can be done at the beginning, throughout and at the end of the sessions to help relax muscles and release tension that may build up over the activity.

Try to have one activity from each of the groups as they focus on the five main areas of the body used when handwriting, our Warm up program is a great place to start..

Remember tense muscles can make handwriting hard work and may tire your child more quickly.
