Provide activities where the child is using their fingers to help develop the small muscles. Like What? Puzzles, building blocks, play dough, clay, rubber stamps, magnet letters, small cars and trucks, crayons, etc. Slide 15 2. EYE-HAND Coordination This allows the childs hand to react to what the eye sees. These activities will help the child to develop writing skills: Like what? Drawing, tracing, cutting, painting, pasting, finger paints, typing (key boards) lacing cards, stringing items, etc. Slide 16 As a child begins to use straight lines and circle drawings to represent different pictorial ideas, they are beginning to write.
