The Finer Things in Life

My students need fine motor mazes, a fine motor workbench, and a sorting kit.

My Students

Imagine trying to write your name, zip your pants or even open your milk and finding yourself constantly saying, “I can’t”. These seemly simple skills require the development of your fine motor skills.

Many of my students come to school lacking the strength in these muscles.

Fine motor skills are important in most school activities as well as in life in general. Weaknesses in fine motor skills can affect a child's ability to eat, write legibly, use a computer, turn pages in a book, and get dressed.

My Project

We need more activities of that keep the children interested and supplies that accommodate their fine motor challenges. Fine motor mazes, a fine motor workbench and a sorting kit would all help my students develop their fine motor muscles. Having these materials will be vital to helping them develop cutting and writing skills and gain confidence.

Your donations will help develop the fine motor skills of these little geniuses.

They will grow to develop the skills need to write, turn pages and fix their own clothes. Your support to this project will be invaluable.
