Kindergarteners are on the go. They are able to do more physically, and their ability to do things with their fingers and hands is improving. Their large and small motor skills are making life more interesting and a lot more fun! Large Motor Skills involve movement of the muscles in the arms, legs, and torso. Large motor skills are used on the playground, in sports, and other physical activities. Small Motor Skills involve movement of the muscles in the hands and fingers. Small motor skills are needed to perform tasks such as drawing, cutting, and writing.
