Fine Motor Skills First

I am a firm believer in working on fine motor skills through play and not just writing and tracing worksheets. I don't push holding a pencil or writing until they show interest. In this case, I am following my child's lead and providing him with the next step in learning how to write. This will be added to our busy bag rotation and will not be used daily unless he chooses to. I will continue to provide lots of natural ways to develop fine motor skills and continuing to teach proper pencil grip. I encourage you to do the same until your young child is ready and showing interest.
