This workbook focuses specifically on those important fine motor skills that many children struggle with and that all children need in order to be successful as they enter school. Skills that seem natural to adults need to be learned. These foundational skills are sometimes difficult and frustrating for children at first.

In this book, we will teach the skills, learn fine motor coordination activities that will enhance the skills, have practice activities for the skills, and provide worksheets to perfect the skills. You will see a definite progression in the child's skill development as he or she progresses through the activities in the book.

These easy-to-use workbooks are great for enrichment, classroom practice, tutoring, home schooling, or just for fun!

Help children develop their listening skills and prepare for formal learning. Activities teach children to focus, interpret, recall, organize, and carry out multiple tasks in order.

These listening activities begin with simple, single directions and progressively include more complex, multiple directions.

Also included are teacher-directed physical activities in which children are instructed to move in single or multiple ways. These practices, along with the rhythm clapping suggestions, lend themselves well to getting everyone's attention and bringing a group together.

Testimonials for Education Materials, Teacher ResourcesTestimonials

I am a stay at home mom who values education very much, and these resources have been able to help me start my child's education early in order to give her a head start before she even enters into school. - Heather L.

The resources I received will help me tremendously with reading skills. I was amazed at how quickly I received my order. - Annette H.

My son needed some additional work with his fine motor skills to prepare him for Kindergarten next year. We work out of the books I ordered. He does his "homework" when my older son is completing his after school. He loves it! It makes him feel like a big boy. I was amazed that my order arrived two days after I placed it, especially because it was the Holiday season. - Dawn M.

I purchased the full color Kindergarten file folder games, and my students love them. We use them daily during our literacy groups. Your service was great! - Cindy M.

They provide a variety of ways to reach different students and allow me to vary my activities year-to-year. - Staci M.

I have used all the materials with my Kdg. class and found them to be so appropriate. The children enjoy them. - Jennifer C.
