exploring with keys and locks

Different media- paint, chalk, felt tips, etc

playing with ribbons and dancing

big writing on wallpaper

Mouse control, typing and playing games on the computer

Pegs boards

Finger painting letters and numbers

Cutting practice

Picking up rice with their fingers

Tongs work

Pouring techniques

Squeezy bottles letter work

We are also working on using capital letters and not mixing upper and lower cased letters incorrectly.
