Connect 4- Good Fine Motor Game


 We love this game an I didn’t realize how Connect 4 works on a lot of OT skills. Who knew?  Well, if didn’t too here how it does
You have to pick up the checker-like pieces and reach up and slide them into the slots at the top of the game.
Picking up the pieces works on fine motor control, reaching to put the piece in the game works on upper extremity strength, range of motion, and crossing midline if positioned right. Getting the piece into the slot works on visual/perceptual-motor skills.
On top of the skills,in order to win  you have to be aware of all of the pieces played going in multiple directions, and be able to perceptually see the pieces and how they are being played.
Skills:
  • Fine motor skills
  • Visual/perceptual motor skills
  • Upper extremity strengthening
  • Crossing midline
  • Using an involved extremity
  • Upper extremity range of motion

How Does ABCmouse.com Work?

When you first sign on to ABCmouse.com, your child (or children — up to three can play and learn on one account) is prompted to create an avatar that looks just like him. After your child is happy with how he looks (avatars can be changed), they are also asked to create a teacher for their classroom. You are also asked to choose a learning path for your child based on age and academic ability.  You can also choose Preschool (ages 3 and up), Pre-K (ages 4 and up) and Kindergarten (ages 5 and up). Every level features four curriculum subjects — Reading, Math, the World Around Us and Art & Colors.

The home base is the classroom, which is where all the learning begins. Through online books, games, songs, puzzles  online art projects and printables that cover six different academic levels, children are able to learn about a variety of subjects. The over 2,000 individual learning activities span a host of topics, including reading, math, science, social studies, art and music. While there are learning paths that kids follow and work their way through, there are also sections on the site, including a farm and a zoo, where kids can play individual games and complete individual activities.
 

As a child completes an activity, they are awarded “tickets” that are able to be redeemed for virtual prizes. The site keeps track of what your child has completed so you get a good feel for what they are learning

As your child moves along lesson path, the activities switch from subject to subject and get more challenging.

Once you and your child are comfortable on the site, you can build custom lessons for your child if there are particular things you’d like them to learn. You can choose by subject, academic level and even the order in which you’d like your child to complete them in.

Playing with Tongs-{Color Sorting Game}


Sometimes best learning tool can from around the house or in this case the kitchen. I grab 2 pair tongs we have and w/ the lego’s had him picking them up by color,size and we then did passing game back and fourth using no hands just the tongs.It was pretty fun!

                                   



                             ( As you can see he liked to cheat Lol)

                              As you can see he wanted to use his hands Lol


The ability to use tongs is a pre-scissors skill, and the ability to use scissors is a pre-writing skill.When kids use tongs, they have to learn to “separate” the two sides of their hands (thumb/index finger side and middle/ring/pinky finger side), and this is exactly what is needed in order to successfully operate both scissors and a pencil

When it comes to buying clothes  I hate to have to spend a fortune on kids clothes because they are grow so fast and like play,you know holes in knees of jeans that they can’t remember they get. I like few good months out clothes sometimes mix an match old w/ new
Check out what I got:   (I discovered Boys or just mine doesn’t do back to school try on clothes,got a lot eye rolling and huffing to do it Lol But got these 3 pics of outfits love them
