We can prepare children’s hands for learning to write long before thay have to pick up writing tools.
When children start writing and drawing, they fingers and hands have to work as hard as marathon runner’s legs.
No one tries to run a marathon without doing some training first. Finger Gym can provide that training.
What is Finger Gym?
Finger Gym is a comprehensive programme of developmental games, stories, rhymes and activities to improve fine motor skills, language and handwriting.
It helps to develop strong, flexible fingers, hands and arms. It promotes better hand-eye co-ordinations, differentiated movement and manual dexterity. It fosters children’s use and understanding of spoken language. It builds cognitive abilities and provide opportunities to practise self-regulation.
The time spent enjoying the games and activities in the book will help children to build the secure foundation required for the acquisition of legible, rapid and fluent handwriting.
