While learning about the letter “Nn”, the DuckTail class strung Noodles onto ribbon to create necklaces. Then they used Q-tips and water color paint to decorate their necklaces.
Stringing beads and noodles help children fine tune their fine motor skills, improving these skills helps the learn proper pencil grasp for writing activities. These beading activities also help build increased concentration and attention span, and hand eye coordination. While beading, children are learning pre math skills by becoming familiar with length, measurement and patterns. After completing the project, children feel a sense of accomplishment and are proud of the product they have created.
