What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?
This spider count and match worksheet is designed to help your children practice and develop their prewriting skills, such as:
- One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once.
- Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
- Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
- Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
- Number recognition – they’ll need to be able to recognize the numbers to match them up correctly
- Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement
Some of these are vital fine motor skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!
