Cutting, pasting, and playing ball will help prepare your child's hands for writing.
In kindergarten, kids will practice the fine motor skills needed for writing. This video explains how children develop the fine motor skills they’ll need to control chalk or a pencil. Parents can help children strengthen their child’s hand and wrist muscles by teaching them to sort objects, cut paper, and hold a pencil. The video is most appropriate for parents of children in preschool and kindergarten.
