There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bat Sequencing Activity:

Why Are Fine Motor Skills Important?

From holding a pencil to turning the pages in a book, kids use their fine motor skills every day 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.

After I read the story to my class, I used this activity in small groups. I had one set of cards and links for every student. We worked together to put the pictures in order. They loved it! I plan on putting it in my centers next week so they can do it independently. I love all your activities! Thanks for sharing!
