How to help develop pre-writing skills

Here is a great way to help children to develop pre-writing skills. Pre-writing skill development sets the foundation for children to develop quickly when they pick up a pencil. Fine motor skills are the ability to make small precise movements with control, using fingers, wrists and hands. The strengthening of these muscles from an early age is very important and there are lots of fun ways to do it.

Fine motor skills are not only important for writing— they are necessary in order to button and zip clothes, tie shoes, and later learn to read without difficulty. Eye-hand coordination is a prerequisite for developing the visual perception necessary to read from left to right (Beaty, 1979).
