Writing and fine motor practice

One goal of the kindergarten year is to improve and practice fine motor skills, which help students in tasks like writing, drawing and building with small objects. I try to find creative and fun ways to do this in class. Below we used paint and cotton swabs to make dot-to-dot pictures for the winter, which was a lot of fun. We also learned to play the game Pictionary with partners as part of our morning meeting - an easy game you can play at home too!

We also started a new writing unit, in which we'll learn how to write lists, cards, letters and pattern stories. Below are some pictures of the lists we made this week. I love seeing what the kids come up with!


"My Birthday Wish List"

"My Friends in Kindergarten"

"Reasons I Love My Mom"
