Help me give my students some amazing targets to help with their hand-eye coordination, which allows the eyes to indirectly coordinate the movements of the hands. Good coordination improves movement & it even improves reading and writing.
My students are creative, energetic and enthusiastic! They absolutely love being active. Some of their favorite physical activity games are ones that allow them to think outside the box and be physically challenged!!
Our school district is made up of four small districts that have been consolidated into one.
Our school district is very rural. 100% of our students are on free lunches. Most of the families have to travel to the next town for employment. Our little town doesn't have much to offer it's residents when it comes to employment. But we are a small, loving community and our little school is the glue that holds four small communities together.
Our students are our future and they deserve the best opportunities so that they can succeed in the future.
These targets will help my students improve their hand-eye coordination, which will help their mobility as well as their reading and writing abilities.
Hand-eye coordination allows the eyes to indirectly coordinate the movements of the hands.
Your eyes send electrical signals to your brain providing information about visual stimuli. Your brain then sends signals to your hands telling them how to move in response to these stimuli. This complex process occurs in a split second, but errors in the process can result in difficulties coordinating movement, balance problems, trouble focusing the eyes on the hand's movements during exercise and sports and difficulties with learning-related tasks such as reading and writing.
