Letters On A Line

Fine motor activities are the most difficult for young children to practice on a consistent basis. Because they are mobile and constantly on the move, they tend to prefer gross motor activities such as jumping, running, pulling, and pushing.

To continue to hone these necessary skills, your little one participated in a special activity designed to build and refine the small muscles in their hands. Experiences such as these aid your little one’s ability to grasp a writing instrument, manipulate tiny objects, and handle scissors.

For this activity, your little one was directed to grab the letters of their name with a clothespin. Their task was to maintain a firm grip on the clothespin as they placed it into a matching letter.

All letters were vertical, so they worked from top to bottom, enjoying themselves in the process!
