Hammer Time

At Oisca, we have a dedicated Practical Activity Room, in which students work on developing their fine motor skills by learning practical skills that they can and will use in their everyday lives. Each week, as they visit the Practical Activity Room, they will focus on one exercise that gives them the needed practice. This week is hammering, but the next week may be pouring water from a pitcher into cups without spilling or opening various locks with keys.

Here we see our youngest students of kindergarten focus on using a hammer. They concentrate on accuracy in striking, the variable amounts of force used, and their own grip strength and positioning on the hammer itself. Like most learning at our school, it's simply fun and can be an enjoyable activity for the kids. However, they are 'secretly' developing all the necessary motor skills they'll need.
