Finger Activities – youcubed

On a visit to Marybank Primary School this week a great resource to develop Pre-Handwriting Skills was shared.

The Finger Training resource from Youcubed is a great resource to support the development of pre-writing and hand/eye co-ordination.

mbThe resource includes a number of finger activities which are not only beneficial for pre-handwriting but also for visual mathematics.

The resource suggests using coloured dots; however, in Marybank they were using plastic rings instead so that these can be reused. These activities really get the children thinking!

The development of hand/eye co-ordination is crucial to the writing process. This is a great way to support the development of this!
