Happy New Year’s Eve! Well, it is already for us in Greenwich Mean Time! Have you decided upon your goals for the New Year? I’m still trying to decide what is achievable for me before I set them in stone. I’d fill a notebook with all of the things I’d like to do! Let me know what you’re aiming for in the comments below, I’d really love to hear them!
One of our home school goals is for the children to continue improving their printing skills. And while they’re doing that, I’d love to get back to trying my hand at calligraphy and Japanese characters. You’re never too old to learn new skills or improve on the ones you have. Today I’ve chosen to feature some pre-writing fine motor practice. Although….these activities would be fun for any age!
If you missed last week’s round-up, I featured Frozen-themed activities. Have a look through and be inspired! This resource for Moms is packed full of parenting tips, activities for children, crafts, recipes and more!
Fine Motor Skills for Pre-Writing
I remember the quiet book Mom made for us when we were younger. She’s also made one for our children, which they have been using for the past 4 years. Powerful Mothering has a great no sew quiet book!
Sugar Aunts has some great ways to have some cutting practice to strengthen up those little hands and get them coordinated. She also has many additional links to more activities to help your child with fine motor skills.
BJ’s Homeschool has a review to share with you on a pencil starter kit, as well as links to more resources on handwriting helps.
Christmas is over for most, but not if you celebrate on January 6th! Powerful Mothering has 3 printable fine motor tracing worksheet with a Christmas theme.
