There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat Sequencing Activity:
Sequencing is important in helping beginning readers comprehend what they have read. In this activity, your kids need to recall the order in which the old lady swallowed the Halloween things and connect the picture together. Using connect links helps your children to develop their fine motor skills too.
Why Are Fine Motor Skills Important?
From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, kids use their Fine Motor Skills everyday as they are learning to read and write. The development of the small muscles in the hands and fingers in coordination with the eyes is important in not only children’s learning but also in their everyday life.
