Improving Our Fine Motor Skills

We are off to a great start in Mrs. Ahern’s class!  The students have been working on identifying the first letter of each of the student’s first name and identifying the numbers one through five.  We have also been working on strengthening fine motor skills (the skills needed in Kindergarten to hold a pencil and write for longer periods of time). We are developing our fine motor skills by playing with playdough, stringing beads, or using tongs. During the month of November, we worked on strengthening our fine motor skills by squeezing bottled glue and using our pincher grasp to decorate a turkey with colored corn.
