Today we have spent the afternoon completing some fine motor activities. There were 4 rotations; play dough, threading with beads, puzzles and picking up cotton balls with tongs. Regular practice of fine motor skills helps to build muscle strength in their hands and is important for writing, cutting, zipping, buttoning etc.
This term Chelsea and Xenia are opening the art room on Fridays in the second break to do an Art Club with Grade 1 and 2 students. The club is a great way for students to create more art outside their structured weekly art lesson. The club also allows students to form friendships with students from other classes. The club is capped at 25 students, but once each project finishes a new group of 25 students can start. The students are currently creating some beautiful toucan artworks, using paper plates, tissue paper and paint. Keep an eye out on the arts blog: http://bellpsarts.global2.vic.edu.au for photos of the finished toucans!
