This month LK have been using the interactive whiteboard in the classroom. Our existing children had played the Shape Monster game before, so it was an opportunity for them to practise their dragging skills with the special pen.
Our new children also enjoyed their first chance to hold and drag the shapes to the correct monster.
It is a fantastic game as it encourages children to persevere when they find it a little tricky. It is wonderful to see their faces when they succeed and really boasts their self-confidence. It also helps strengthen hand and finger muscles used for mark making, as they have to apply pressure to the board in order to drag the shapes.
