Help me give my students the tools they need to build their fine motor strength.
My classroom is a place where students are challenged to think outside the box and to never give up. I always give my students an opportunity to succeed in their own way. Everyone is smart and is capable of doing anything they choose. My school is an amazing place where every teacher believes in their students. We do not have a lot of money, but it does not stop us from making a difference in our students' lives. Students are bused in from all over, and poverty is something we see on a daily basis. We usually pay for our own classroom supplies because not every parent can afford to help.
We do not have money for many expenses at our site; however, that does not stop us from trying to create the best learning experience we can for our students.
Our school is small, with only about four hundred and fifty students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Many of my students live in poverty and have real-life struggles, but all of that is forgotten when they walk into my classroom.
A major part of kindergarten is learning how to write. 5 year olds need to build muscle strength in their hands in order to be able to write.
I want to support my students and ease their frustration about writing.
Writing can be so hard for 5 year olds! Different activities help students build their fine motor skills. Using play dough and tweezers help students work out their hand muscles. These activities help strengthen my students hands while they are having fun. It is a win win for everyone! Once my students build their muscles they will be able to become successful writers!
