Ready, Aim......WRITE?

Any eye-hand coordination activity is preparation for writing.  My recent favorite is shooting bubbles!

First of all, just chasing and popping bubbles is a grand eye-hand coordination activity -- but taking it to the next level by adding spray bottles is all the more fun!!  Bonus...it's a great way to stay cool on hot summer days plus, squeezing that bottle is lots of hard work!

Ah....play counts!!

Go...plop some bubbles and water sprayers...and see what happens!  Remember to give ownership of discovery to the children!  Resist the urge to show them this activity!  It WILL happen eventually, and when children own the discovery there is SO MUCH MORE LEARNING!!!
