My Project

Fine motor development is essential to developing everyday skills such as pre-writing for future academic achievement and life skills. A lack of motor skills can affect social and emotional development. Thanks to the enticing animal stringing beads, fishing game, rainbow peg board, and the slide color match puzzle, the students will strengthen their fine motor skills as they play. The magnetic blocks will create opportunities for imaginative reciprocal play while developing motor skills. The rotating letter tool balances fine motor with literacy to differentiate the curriculum for students ready for academics.

Research has proven that play is how children learn, so providing the students with these beautiful materials will engage and entice my preschool students to play while at the same time developing strong fine motor skills.

My students work so hard to remain on task, and with the addition of a sensory fidget toy for every student, they will be able to refocus on the activity at hand.
