How important are fine motor skills? “Fine motor skills are those that involve a refined use of the small muscles which control the hand, fingers and thumb. With the development of these skills, a child is able to complete important tasks such as writing, feeding oneself, buttoning and zippering.” Without fine motor skills, the child would struggle to write or complete simple tasks. Help them develop these skills at an early age!
ENGAGING GRAPHICS AND THEMES FOR YOUNG LEARNERS!
Kids want colorful and vibrant activities! They respond really well to activities that spark their interests. Ones that require less PAPER and more hands-on games. Kids also love to play games – these activities engage them by using their critical thinking skills to compete and play games sutiable to their age group! Worksheets do NOT engage kids. They might be keen to complete a worksheet once and even then it’s a struggle to get some kids to complete a worksheet. These activities make kids forget that they are learning and instead engages them in learning right away – which is what every teacher wants right? 😉
PRESCHOOLERS LOVE FUN THEMES!
Young kids love THEMED activities. They love seeing figures and pop culture they can identify with! These activities are school themed. They will work perfectly at the beginning of your school year. They will learn essential vocabulary they will need right from the get go!
|“Excellent unit for the beginning of the year! Such bright colors and easy-to-understand directions. Can’t wait to use these – will there be other units coming or a growing bundle available?” – Janice B
