During the month of March we have focused on developing our motor skills. Mastering both fine and gross motor skills are important for our student's growth and independence. The children have done this by engaging in writing activities and have enjoyed quite a few nice days outside on the playground. Having good motor control helps children explore the world around them and also helps with their cognitive development. Preschoolers are learning everyday through play by experiencing new textures, sounds, colors and patterns. You don’t need expensive toys for this to happen. Playing with children and letting them explore using items you already have around the house. You may not realize but a bucket and wooden spoon can be a ton of fun!
