7.4-Fine Motor Development

Children develop fine motor skills.

Three boys use hand-eye coordination to perform...fine-motor tasks with...manipulative materials including sewing cards and puzzles.

One boy works to put a puzzle together while another is working on a sewing card. The associate asks another boy if he would like a sewing card and when he affirms that he would, she offers him a choice between two cards. As the boy looks for the end of the string to begin lacing, he pulls the string completely out of the card. His first attempt to put the string through the card is unsuccessful and he holds onto the card and begins to play with a puzzle. When the associate notices he is not using the sewing card, but still holding it, she offers to demonstrate the threading technique. The child then continues lacing the card independently.
