November Skill Builders: Literacy, Math, Fine-Motor, Executive Functioning
Did you know that fine motor skills in preschool and kindergarten are the number one best predictor of academic skills and achievement for your kindergarten age student? (Cameron, et al.: 2012; Grissmer, David, et al.: 2010; Son & Meisels: 2006) This fine motor advantage lasts for at least through the third grade! (Kulp: 1999)
As an Occupational Therapist, I have designed differentiated Skill Builders to
◦ Build fundamental fine motor and executive functioning skills for kindergarten age kids.
◦ Target specific CCSS literacy and math skills in ways that interest and engage even the most reluctant children.
◦ Provide differentiated yet equivalent materials so you can easily provide the just-right level of difficulty and challenge for a classroom with diverse skills.
