My students need Lego materials in order to strengthen their fine motor skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My Pre-K and Kindergarten students range in age from four to six years old. They are happy-go-lucky, inquisitive and energetic. They love to learn and play. Our students are in a full-day program. They arrive early in the morning and leave late in the afternoon.
Our Pre-K Center provides a challenging environment focusing on skills that are needed to move on to Kindergarten.
Our students are assessed throughout the year and are taught skills based on their individual needs. Our students always show significant growth by the end of the school year.
So how will Legos benefit my Pre-K students? One important skill that we work on throughout the year in my Pre-K classroom is that of fine-motor skills. These skills are the foundation that is needed before children can even attempt to learn handwriting.
Fine-motor skills involves refining the use of small muscles which control the hand, fingers and thumb.
These muscles, when developed, enable a child to complete tasks such as writing with a pencil, feeding oneself, buttoning and zippering, and even playing a musical instrument.
The Build Me Emotions Legos and Creative Lego Duplo Brick Set I am asking for will encourage self-expression and develop the fine-motor skills children need to succeed. Legos can be used over and over again as structures are built, deconstructed and built over again. The Lego packages also come with "Building Cards" which provide support and inspiration which children can use to assist them in their creativity.
