Peter Pans and Pinochos have been engaged in many different fine motor skills activities to strengthen their fingers and develop a good pencil grip so when they color drawings and start writing (some of them already do!) they feel confident enough. Among these activites are lacing buttons, using pegs on pegboards, tearing paper, modeling play-dough and using a puncher.
This last week we have started tracing lines from top to bottom on different surfaces and using a variety of materials.
We started drawing lines from top to bottom on a wall with chalk.
We have been using this wonderful app.
We drew straight lines on the smart board.
We also used our whiteboards and markers.
As well as the easel.
And we traced over dotted lines on our worksheets.
