Did you know that expecting young children to attempt using a writing tool before laying an appropriate foundation can actually create bad habits- or ineffective grasp and movements? Using a writing tool is one of the most complex skills children will learn to do. We need to be careful that we aren’t expecting them to do too much too soon. Students in this class will have fun developing their sensory, visual-motor, gross motor, attention, and fine motor skills to ensure a solid foundation for eventually learning to print. Weekly activities will be presented and shared with parents and caregivers so that ongoing practice with these appropriate activities can occur. Students will learn finger plays, activities to promote eye-hand coordination, and some basic tool use that will promote the development of prewriting skills. Kristin Freed, Occupational Therapist keeps the class size at 6 in order to provide individualized instruction to facilitate each student’s development regardless of their ability. She has over 20 years experience working with young children and has proven success helping students be successful learning to write through her Write Stuff classes.
