ParentCircle, ParentcircleParentCircle

Activities involving the use of fingers play a critical role in the overall development of fine motor skills. Learning these skills will help a child increase the dexterity of his hands and fingers. Not only will this help the child carry out routine daily tasks with ease and speed, but also help him develop a good handwriting.

In this ClipBook, we present a set of five activities designed by Jo Boaler, Professor of Mathematics Education at Stanford Graduate School of Education. You'll also find a few novel activities that require the use of fingers and learn about the importance of the development of finger skills in young children. The ClipBook also features a TedTalk by Jo Boaler, the creator of the finger activities, wherein she tells us about how learning maths can be a rewarding experience for both children and adults.
