Workout in TK!

This week we worked on our fine motor skills by picking up pencil cap erasers with clothespins.

Fine motor skills are very important at this age. We work on fine motor skills a lot in class... without even knowing it!  Things like building with blocks, playing with Legos, forming objects with play-do, cutting with scissors, and coloring all help build our muscles in our hands, fingers and thumb.

Now that we are beginning writing in TK,  we are working more on our pencil grip, letter and number formation, and even writing our WOW (Word Of the Week) words.  

I told the kids it was time for our little hands to head to the gym!  This was a tough hand/finger workout!  The kids not only did great...they loved it!
