Today the children have been developing their fine motor skills in a variety of ways.
Fine motor skills is the coordination of small muscles in movement with the eyes, hands and fingers.
“ I have to move it over there to catch the bubble”
We put shaving foam on the light board and used our hands and fingers to draw shapes and make patterns. This provides children with the opportunity to strengthen their hand muscles and hand eye coordination.
“ I made a line through it”
We spent some time at the mark making table where the children drew pictures, copied and continued shape and number patterns.
