Full Speed loves kindergarten. He is reading, enjoying math and attempting to write. His writing is more like hieroglyphics than the actual written English language. I’d like to say what he lacks in style he makes up in enthusiasm (not so!). Sitting at a table and practicing handwriting is pretty excruciating when all you’d rather do is get up and run.
I know he can do it. He knows he can do it. He just doesn’t WANT to do it.
I’m trying all sorts of activities to keep him interested in strengthening his fine motor skills. Lacing objects is great because it uses all the same muscles as writing and hones visual perception (or something like that).
I even have T.Puzzle in on the action. His fine motor skills will be off the chain when he hits kindergarten, or will they?
Check out how it all went down as my boys attempted to lace a wooden slice of pizza:
I found it highly entertaining. At that moment I could care less about proper letter formation. All I could do was laugh.
So I did.
