Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills are the small movements made by the fingers, hands, and wrists. These skills are art & writing skills, snapping, buttoning, tying, lacing, and picking up small objects, to name a few. Skills are developed by very patient teachers and lots of daily practice.

At Le Chaperon Rouge, fine motor skills are worked on in various ways- buttoning a shirt, rolling play dough into a long snake, using a pair of tweezers to pick up small objects, putting together tiny puzzle pieces, practicing handwriting, or using a plastic butter knife to cut an apple. Our curriculum indicates weekly skills and goals for teachers to work on, encouraging manipulation of the small hand muscles in fresh and diverse ways.
