Dinosaur Egg with EYFS Observations

 

This project is all about observing the children using pens or crayons to draw lines and colour in.

Print off the dinosaur template and get the children to use a pen to connect the dots and form the picture. How well can they manipulate the pen to connect the dots and do colouring in?

EYFS Observations

EYFS Learning and Development Area:

Physical Development: Movement and Handling

Early Learning Goals:

Children show good control and co-ordination in making small movements.

 

What to look for on this project:

16-26 months Can young children use a pen or crayon to make marks? When using a pen, can the children make the connection between the movements they are making and the marks the pen makes?
22-36 months How well can the children control the fine movements of their fingers to grip the pen and make marks? Are they showing increasing control holding pens and crayons?   Do the children use a three finger (tripod grip) to hold the pen? Do they show preference for a dominant hand?
30-50 months How good is the children’s hand-eye coordination? How well do they use pens to join the dots and colour in? Do they show preference for a dominant hand?
40-60 months How good is the children’s hand-eye coordination? How well do they use pens to join the dots and colour in? Do they show preference for a dominant hand?
