I always have students at varying stages of fine motor skills development. The challenge is to bring them all up to the same level so they could write their names, numbers and letters before they enter kindergarten. So I'm always on the lookout for ways to develop their fine motor skills in a fun way.
Children need to not only control the pencil but they need to also grip the pencil properly to be able to write with ease. So I also wanted specific activities that got children to use a writing implement so they can practice holding and controlling it. Below are some of the drawing activities that chiidren did.
