It is difficult to find a parent who would not hear about the development of fine motor skills. It is now full of various literature, articles in magazines that is very useful and just need to develop fine motor skills.
Many people know that it is necessary to develop this very fine motor skills, but not everyone knows how. Let’s figure it out!
Having read literature and articles on the Internet, I can say the following. Motility is the ability of a child to perform small and precise coordinated movements.
I admit honestly, my son has some problems with coordination of movements. Although he started walking early (10 months), he still walks now (1 year and 4 months) very badly. He has poor coordination of movements.
I can not say that I did not develop it or he does not know how. Just probably he has such a feature. And I decided to act. I urgently need to coordinate it, develop dexterity, develop its arms and legs.
After all, the development of fine motor skills plays a very important role for the overall development of the baby. And which mother does not care about this, tell me?
And even the babies themselves develop fine motor skills. You do remember how a tiny little ball looks at everything that is in front of him? These are his pens, fingers, legs. Remember how the baby began to grab you by the finger, then by the hair, to take a toy?
Features fine motor skills
First, the crumb takes items all over the palm. His movements are awkward, clumsy. But then he learns to take the toys that you give him with two fingers: his thumb and forefinger. Then the toddler should be taught to properly hold a spoon, fork, pencil, brush.
In psychomotor has a very important feature. It is directly connected with the nervous system, attention, memory, vision. It is also proven that fine motor skills affect a child’s worldview and language development. This is pretty simple to explain.
You know that there are many points at your fingertips that are responsible for human organs and systems? Developing them, we develop the crumbs. In addition, the speech and motor centers are nearby in the brain. Activate the speech center is easy – you need to knead the fingers and pens.
There is also a definite plus in the development of motor skills.
Psychomotor activity directly affects handwriting, movement dexterity, activity, handwriting, speed and manual dexterity. The sooner the child is engaged in development, the better it is later to be prepared for school. Namely, prepare a hand for the letter, and not only that.
How to develop fine motor skills
Motility in children develops in different ways. Everything is purely individual, I myself was convinced of this. Someone more, someone less, someone grasps everything on the fly, and someone has to explain a few times or leave classes for later.
In this regard, educational games are very helpful. There are a lot of them today. In the same way as development centers. But I think that you can practice with your child at home. So, our games:
one. Tearing paper
Many mummies can fly at me with questions, like so, is it possible to give children paper! Why not? The child must develop, must learn various processes. And tearing the paper is by the way, suitable for children from 6-7 months.
My son is an occupation for the soul. As an alternative, you can take multicolored paper, newspapers, toilet paper (if you feel sorry for ordinary).
2 Turning pages
This kids can already learn from the year. One year old toadstops can turn the book over themselves, look at the pictures. A children’s album, a magazine with colorful pictures will also do. As you can see, everything goes in our turn: fairy tales, a children’s album and a culinary magazine 🙂
It is relevant at any age! This method of developing fine motor skills can be done from birth. You just need to drive your finger along the palm of your child and easily massage it. Folk fun: Ladushki, Magpie-crow, Bear, and many others.
My son was introduced to beads by the eldest daughter. All her jewelry, including beads, is stored in her handbag. She loved to play with them, so she taught the younger brother to this.
It is extremely useful to sort out small objects (beads, buttons, balls). But! Be sure to watch the baby! Children are still very tricky, nimble. It is necessary to turn away, as he can swallow beads (at best).
Krupa play we love. It is useful to sort out different cereals: semolina, buckwheat, vermicelli, beans. Getting a pen in a jar is so nice! You’ll see how the baby likes it!
