Fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the body that enable such functions as writing, grasping small objects, and fastening clothing. When we refer to fine motor skills in the context of handwriting we are typically talking about the small muscles in the hands and fingers used for writing.
Peeling and sticking stickers improves the same muscles that students use for developing their pencil grasp. So this morning we used our fine motor skills to create artwork with stickers. Some of us who did it yesterday even made one to take home today.
The girls made friends with some of the girls in Mrs. Hoehner's preschool class.
Riding the tricycles takes lots of strong large muscles.
Back on our classroom Audrey and Dominic set the table for snack
After snack we took a tour of the church. Those of us who went yesterday helped us learn about some of the things we saw.
We also worked on counting and identifying numbers by rolling the dice and then adding the same number of stars to our paper.
