Add Arrows To Name Mat?

Note: Hyphenated names can be used but no spaces between names

Pre-writing skills are the key skills children require before they are able to write.

These skills contribute greatly to the child’s ability to draw, colour and write and play a major role in their ability to hold and use a pencil.

The 9 key pre-writing shapes make up most letters and numbers and your child will typically be able to master these shapes with practice when they are developmentally ready (see photo gallery for 'what to expect').

Our pre-writing learning mats are designed to help your child practice tracing and copying the key shapes and patterns required before moving onto letter formation. They build confidence making sure your child is truly ready to start forming letters.

Pushing a child to learn to write too early can be detrimental to their future learning in all subject areas so it is very important to take their time and get it right to avoid forming bad habits.

 

Why choose our learning mats?

  • A gradual approach to learning to write, designed to aid confidence and development independent letter formation (stage 1, stage 2, stage 3)
  • Our letter formation mats have clear 'starting stars' so the child knows where to begin the pencil movement and 'ending dots' so they know where to finish.  
  • 3 different designs, colourful and bright to make 'learning fun'!
  • Minimal guidelines on the name mat so less daunting for younger children.
  • Directional arrows can be added if required (select on checkout)
  • Recommended for ages 3 years and above
  • Wipeable/Reusable
  • Double-sided
  • Recommended by primary school teachers
  • Great reviews by parents

    Amazing service

    I love these they're doing wonders for my little one who before would absolutely refuse to even hold a pen! Now she's scribbling away trying to follow the lines!!

    The service was fantastic, I accidentally ordered to the wrong address and Jo's customer service was brilliant when dealing with this issue!

    Thankyou so so much!!

    Helped to build my sons confidence.

    My son is not very enthusiastic about mark making and he is a bit of a perfectionist. So if something doesn't look how he thinks it should (like writing his own name),he doesn't want to return to the activity.
    He chooses one of the cards to complete every morning before nursery, and I've noticed his confidence increase. He sees that he has written his name and is so proud of himself. Its a great resource to have and I will be buying others when my son is ready.
