We have been reading our monthly book, "It Smells!"
For fine motor we used a cotton ball to paint. Hand and finger movements are the building blocks of fine motor skills. These skills involve the coordination and control of the small muscles in the hands and fingers. Fine motor skills are crucial for tasks such as holding a pencil, using utensils, buttoning clothing, and tying shoelaces.
Once they were finished with their fine motor painting, they were encouraged to use the remaining paint to create anything they wanted!
We created an apple tree for their name. The kids that can cut used scissors to cut out the tree/trunk template, the other kiddos that are learning to use scissors, they practice cutting scrap paper or tearing paper.
