    BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF KINDERGARTEN YOUR CHILD SHOULD BE ABLE TO:


    · Use the correct grasp when holding a pencil, marker, crayon, etc.

    · Independently and correctly write his/her first name using both upper and lowercase letters.

    · Independently draw recognizable pictures and then explain to you their drawing.

    · To help your child with fine motor skills have them play with playdoh, LEGOS, build puzzles, put beads on a string, play the game OPERATION, use tweezers to pick up items in a bowl, etc. If you need more ideas a simple google/Pinterest search of “fine motor activities” will give you a wealth of knowledge.
