Motor Skills:

Fine motor skills are achieved when children learn to use their smaller muscles, like muscles in the hands, fingers, and wrists. Children use their fine motor skills when writing, holding small items, buttoning clothing, turning pages, eating, cutting with scissors, and using computer keyboards. Mastery of fine motor skills requires precision and coordination.

In most cases of fine motor skill development, practice does, in fact, make perfect. Some ways to develop these skills are having children do the following activities:

  • Pop bubbles on bubble wrap with just the index finger and thumb.
  • Use an eyedropper to add food coloring to batter with just the index finger and thumb.
  • Finger painting
  • Puzzles
  • Video games
  • Trace shapes or letters
  • Legos or building blocks

Creativity :

Creativity is a constructive process which results in the production of essentially a new product.  Creativity is seeing or expressing new relationships. Creativity is not limited to the objects of everyday use, but it is an instrument for increasing knowledge. Creativity is possible in all areas of life like thinking, working, playing or social interaction.

Creativity involves at least three conditions:

  1. Production of a novel idea or a response,
  2. This idea must solve a problem or accomplish some goal and
  3. The original insights must be sustained and developed to the full.

Creativity is extended over a period of time than limited to a brief episode. It is characterized by originality, adaptiveness and realization.

Personal, Social, Emotional Skills:

Personal, Social and Emotional development (PSED) are typically grouped together to form one area of Childhood Development, this is due to them being firmly entwined and overlapping topics. Although they are often related to one another they can all be looked at individually, with different factors effecting the development of each within a child. Out of the 17 Early Years goals, Personal, Social and Emotional development covers three of these (Department of Education 2012).
Personal development: Is based upon children’s obtainment of knowledge, individual personal skills, their ability to think, and the way in which they perceive themselves (Dowling 2009).

Social Development: “How we come to understand ourselves in relation to others, how we make friends, understand the rules of society and behave towards others” (National Strategies 2008, P5). 

Emotional Development: Having feelings, understanding them and having the ability to feel empathy towards others and their feelings (National Strategies 2008).

Language and Literacy Skills:

The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children. - Becoming a Nation of Readers (1985) U.S. Department of Education Reading aloud to young children is a precious gift of time and attention that has a significant impact on language development and learning. The simple act of sharing a book with a child provides an emotional bond that translates to good memories surrounding reading and conversations about books. There is no cost involved; visit your public library to borrow books to read to your children. Libraries offer hundreds of children’s books and the librarian will be happy to help you select the “just right” book. Rather than buying the latest toy that is advertised on television, read aloud to your child (or students) instead. The new toy is soon discarded, but developing a love of reading provides a lifetime of joy. It begins in the first months of life. All that is needed is an engaging book, a quiet place, and a caring adult who takes the time to read aloud to a child.

Habits of Mind and Habits of Heart are ways that a school can articulate the thinking and emotional dispositions that students need, allowing it to focus its resources.

Habits of Mind are a set of thinking dispositions that help people develop their critical and creative thinking skills. They are the characteristics of what intelligent people do about problems whose resolution is not immediately apparent. That is, these are the mental habits individuals can develop to render their thinking and learning more self-regulated. The Habits of Mind are not designed to be thinking tools; rather they are designed to be dispositions adopted when using a thinking tool.

Habits of Heart is a collection of emotional dispositions designed to help people develop their social-emotional intelligence. Habits of Heart help people care for, identify with, and honor others, and respect the emotions and rights of others and how they see the world. The phrase also describes an ability, capacity, or skill to perceive, assess, and manage one’s own emotions and those of other individuals and groups.
