Description

FINE MOTOR STICKER FUN is an interactive resource which helps children master basic writing strokes. Suitable for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students, these activities provide fun repetitive activities which encourage the mastery of writing strokes.

Basic writing strokes included are as follows:

1- Vertical Line

2- Horizontal Line

3- Circle

4- Cross

5- Diagonal to Lower Left

6- Square

7- Diagonal to Lower Right

8- “X”

9- Triangle

There are many benefits to activities in this resource:

1- Improve Fine Motor Skills. Using stickers is wonderful for fine motor development. Children refine pincer grasp and peeling stickers encourages kids to use two hands together.

2- Improve Shoulder Strength: Good shoulder strength is key to developing efficient hand skills. These pages may be taped to a wall so kids must raise and lower their arms, working on shoulder strength.

3- Prepare Children for Writing: Mastery of writing strokes will help prepare a child for writing letters or numbers.

How To Use This Resource?

1- Look at the Sequence of Visual Motor Development

Start with the simplest writing stroke, vertical lines, no matter a child’s age. Though this will be easy for older kids, it will build their confidence. For younger children, try not to go more than one year past their age.

2- Choose Whether or Not to Laminate Pages

Either is fine. Laminating a page will allow you to re-use pages several times, removing the stickers and washing off the crayon as you go.

3- Tape the Page Onto a Wall

This step is optional. Working on a vertical surface encourages a child to work on his shoulder muscles as he will need to raise and lower his arm. Shoulder strength is important in developing fine motor skills.

4- Get out the stickers!

Ask a child to place stickers on the Starting Star and the Ending Star of each line.

5- Practice the Pre-Writing Strokes

Using crayon pieces (to encourage a tripod grasp) draw the writing strokes.
