A Program To Improve Fine Motor Development in Kindergarten Students.
Wessel, Karen E.
A 10-week practicum intervention was designed to reduce deficiencies in 10 kindergarten children in southwest Florida with poor fine motor skills. The intervention consisted of daily instruction and weekly activity tests. Activities included drawing, tracing, cutting with scissors, pasting, molding with clay, various games, lacing, weaving, and handwriting. It was expected that at the end of the intervention, nearly all children in the target group would substantially improve in tracing, cutting and pasting, and manipulation and handwriting skills. Practicum evaluation data indicated that the intervention was successful. Appendices which comprise half the document provide: Cooperative Preschool Inventory-English/Spanish edition; teacher designed test of fine motor skills; individual instructional plan; activity tests (tracing skills, cut and paste, lacing, handwriting); weekly student checklist, screening posttest, etc. (RH)
