For instance, children can learn basic colors and shapes which are rote and immediate, while also learning visual-spatial awareness which will help develop future reading and writing skills.

Finger Knitting

with Ms. Angeline Bru for Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3

In this club, students will learn how to create something by themselves, using their fingers. It could be a headband, a scarf, a toy animal, anything that comes to mind.
The children can make something quickly, the harder they work the more they produce, and the results are tangible, they can touch and feel the result of their work. It's great to work with wool in the cooler months, it has such a nice warming texture. Finger knitting is good for developing hand and finger strength and hand-eye coordination.  It builds dexterity and strength in those small muscles which control the hand, fingers, and thumb—all critical for later writing skills. Finger knitting also encourages concentration, and perseverance—all equally important for children’s development.
