Art for Pre-School Marissa, Danielle, Angie and Toni Gross Motor Skills - Gross motor skills involve movement of the large muscles in arms, legs, and torso. Using New Materials As children learn the importance of art, they are learning how to use materials they will see for the rest of their lives. Learning basic shapes and colors Creativity & Expressing Emotions Kids use their imagination when they draw. This explains the crazy, indescribable pictures they create that only they would understand. Stages of Development -Scribbles play a major part in the development of a child.
-Children begin scribbling around the age of 15 Months until approximately 3 years of age. -Children begin drawing basic forms such as shapes at approximately
3 years old to 4 years old. Art teaches kids basic shapes, such as circles, squares, and triangles.

Kids also learn the colors of the rainbow. They usually think black, brown, and white are ugly colors and blue, red, green, and any other brighter colors are pretty. -They can use their hands to feel different objects and materials. -They love to learn with hands on activities. -Children begin their first drawings when they enter their 4th and 5th years of age Children draw certain pictures depending on what mood they're in. When children are working in groups, they are increasing their social skills. When working with partners children learn how to work together and share materials and ideas. Social, Emotional, and Intellectual Growth Visual Learning -Visual learners learn from "doing." -Children who are visual learners learn from diagrams, charts, pictures and movies. -Many of these visual techniques can help kinesthetic learners. -Art can help a visual learner in many ways such as learning from the person who is making an art project. For example, if I was drawing a circle, the child would also make an attempt to draw a circle. Cooperation & Hand-Eye Coordination Drawing pictures with art teaches children how to cooperate with other kids at a young age. Just like adults children have hobbies that help them cope with many situations, most children use drawings to express their emotions. This helps the child understand that there are many ways to Using different materials and watching examples of art by their teachers improves childrens hand-eye coordination. Activities There are many activities to do with a child to help develop their fine motor skills. Some of these activities include:
-Making or playing with playdough or clay.
-This activity helps the child develop "pencil holding muscles. (The thumb, index and middle fingers)
-It can also improve hand-eye coordination. -Cutting with sissors, making bubbles, and catching, throwing and bouncing balls.
-These activities will help a child figure out which hand they prefer using, or the "dominant hand." When refining gross motor skills, children do many physical activities such as the Parachute Exercise and playgrounds. Where Can I Bring My Child to Learn About

Cut the sandwich into a number of shapes, then separate the shapes, mix them up and place them on his/her lunch plate.

Have your child reconstruct the sandwich by interlocking the puzzle pieces before he/she eats it. Toast the bread, then spread the slice with margarine, cream cheese, peanut butter or soft cheese.

Give the kids a selection of toppings, such as herbs, seeds, bread crumbs, chopped nuts, crunchy cereal or cinnamon to sprinkle or press into the spread. Citation Page http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/cooking-with-kids/serious-about-snacks-714779/8/ http://www.finemotoractivities.net/
