Teachers know how important it is to develop children's fine motor skills as a stepping stone to future learning, and Mighty Fine Motor Fun provides you with the tools and information you need to teach fine motor skills to children ages 3 to 5. The activities in Mighty Fine Motor Fun are organized by age; they are useful and creative, but most important, they are fun! With few materials needed, the activities are perfect for both large and small groups and are easy to integrate into any curriculum. Activities include; Moving Bubbles Hide-and-Seek Playdough Tape It Up! Shape Person Itsy Bitsy Writing Utensils Paper Mobile And many more! In the final chapter of the book, author and occupational therapist Christy Isbell answers questions from real preschool teachers, including; ''should preschoolers use 'fat' or 'skinny' pencils?'' ''What type of paper is best for cutting?'' ''When should a child use an adult-like grasp of the pencil?'' Teachers will appreciate the practical, real-world knowledge Isbell offers, and children will love the playful, absorbing activities!
