Goal

My goal is to use Spirograph Junior to work on my students' fine motor skills in a fun, unique way! This activity will bring smiles to their faces, and a "can do" attitude to their work!  

 

What will be done with my students

Fine tuning fine motor skills can be a source of frustration for teachers, students and parents. I would like to think out of the box and get these little fingers and muscles working in a fun way! I truly believe that the Spirograph Junior will encourage the students to work with all of the muscles in their fingers and hands that they need for good penmanship, along with shoe tying, button buttoning, and many other hand eye coordination activities.
Once my students are comfortable with their new "tool", I would like them to bring their Spirographs to the assisted living facility that we correspond with. My class makes decorations, writes notes and visits with the residents throughout the year. My students will work with the residents to teach them how to use the Spirographs. .
Not only will it build the student's confidence and self esteem, it will also be a wonderful activity for the elderly, who may struggle with motor skills. I look forward to seeing the little ones helping the residents!

 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits to this project are to both the kindergarten students and the elderly. The students will get to build their fine motor skills, learn to problem solve and build their self confidence. The elderly residents will also work with their fine motor skills, and enjoy some special time with some really special little people!. The residents and students love to do crafts together, so this will be a great activity for all involved.
