Description

Encourage Learning Through Play and Develop Fine Motor Skills in the Block Corner

With a focus on block play and construction, this EYLF-aligned resource helps support the development of a number of separate but interrelated skills, like fine motor, visual tracking, early numeracy skills and more.

Suitable for both Early Years and F, include in your fine motor rotations, as prompts or a display in the block corner, as a whole class project or for children who aren’t typically motivated by ‘sit down’ activities. 

Children belong to diverse families, local and global communities and this resource connects them into this in a practical, age-appropriate and hands-on way.

Featuring 26 different cards, each one:

  • contains real life images of a variety of places, machines and items in a child’s local and global world
  • promotes learning through play
  • promotes visual tracking and spatial awareness as children recreate models from blocks using the prompts on each card, a key skill for learning to read and write
  • encourages global competencies like critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, communication and innovation
  • helps develop fine motor skills, particularly Bilateral Coordination (the ability to coordinate and use both sides of the body at the same time) – a skill children use when cutting with scissors or when throwing and catching a ball

With detailed ‘how to use’ instructions, print 2 to a page for an engaging, hands-on way to develop and refine a variety of skills. 

If you’d like to link the experiences with children in your class and make their learning visible, use this resource with our Fine Motor Display and create displays showcasing how EYLF concepts are at play in your centre or classroom.
