The development of fine motor skills is gradual and flexible, in keeping with the differing needs of individual children. The units contain stories, games, songs and chants, craftwork, and simple experiments. Problem-solving activities encourage children to think critically and creatively. Values lessons teach children how to behave both inside and outside the classroom. Stories, hand-eye coordination practice and letter formation activities lead to reading and writing simple sentences.
