Fine-motor activities/area?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am getting myself a little bit in a muddle about offering fine-motor development resources and activities and was wondering what others do?

Of course there are many areas in the classroom that already offer resources and activities that support children's fine (and gross motor, of course!) development both indoors and outdoors. And I often put out other additional resources to support this - usually to support the needs of a particular child or group of children. However, I have seen and read about a number of different examples where there appears to be a designated area for fine-motor with differentiated activities to support the different levels of ability.

I was wondering if others have a fine motor area or do you offer additional activities as and when they are needed as informed by obs and assessment? Or have a week where you would focus on this particular skill?

Thanks,

Green Hippo x

We have busy fingers activities usually in our exploration area as greenfinch said tweezers, chopsticks, beads, seeds and beans, beads on wire, clay(no tools), etc.

We tend to have the same activity all week but varying degrees of difficulty so the children have time to master/practice the skill.....for instance florist blocks, wire and big beads, medium beads and tiny beads for threading, or beans with buckets and jars and scoops and tweezers. HTH

We have a CP sheet for it but they're not displayed....just in a file and its old EYFS

I have off loaded the job of new CP plans(which they're working on) to room leaders as i never have time ;)

To be honest i'm really not fussed if they are up or not it just seems like re writing the EYFS :P
