Description

Encourage Learning Through Play and Develop Fine Motor Skills with Loose PartsThis hands-on and EYLF-aligned resource involves manipulation of small items that can be used to help your students develop many different skills including hand division, hand/finger strength and other fine motor skills, correct pencil grip, turn taking, creative thinking, exploring maths concepts, developing planning and problem-solving skills.Suitable for both Early Years and Foundation, include in your fine motor rotations as prompts or as a display alongside photos of children’s creations.Use with your collection of assorted age-appropriate loose parts/small items like coloured gems, buttons, pom poms, natural items like shells, leaves, sticks, stones and invite children to create images inspired by the cards with these materials.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 70 different prompts, each card:
  • contains real life images of shapes, patterns, faces and nature in a child’s local and global world.
  • promotes learning through play.
  • promotes visual tracking and spatial awareness as children recreate models from loose parts 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 in-hand manipulation.
With detailed ‘how to use’ instructions, print 4 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 children have 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.
