Magic Strokes: May 11-15, 2009

We have reached the end of summer class. Although it is somewhat a relief, we will surely miss the kids and they too will miss their peers. From start to finish, they all enjoyed our weight bearing exercises, strengthening exercises and pushups. They also loved singing songs and doing finger play. Plus they too await the different fine motor activities as well. This week we enjoyed doing the following: tying and untying ribbons, shoe lacing, opening different kinds of locks, mazes and origami or paper folding. Truly, not only the kids enjoy these activities, but we too get hyped up whener we do these kinds of activities.

We’ve seen big and small changes in Ysabela’s writing skills but of course no matter how big or how small it is it definitely helped her discover her ability in manipulating a writing instrument and enjoying how to strengthen ones fine motor skills. We could attest that in time she will definitely learn those strokes and write legibly than doctors (oooopppps! Just kidding). Remember, practice makes perfect so we have to continue writing, doodling and coloring to enhance those skills.

It was indeed a wonderful summer and we thank you for choosing MSS and our Magic Strokes Program to enhance your child’s skills this summer. We hope to see you again next year and in the coming school year.
