Early childhood education is a critical time for consolidating the fine motor skills necessary for efficient pencil grasp, developing good strong habits for directionality and pre-writing skills, making sense of increasing complex visual information and storing and retaining information for future use (memory).

For this reason, we have created a 232-page Movement and Motor teaching guide to complement any early years program. The book contains clear information on developmental expectations for 4 and 5-year-olds and the foundation skills necessary for handwriting development, with a guide to handwriting readiness in addition to a wide range of activity suggestions.


  • Developed by an Occupational Therapist, this resource provides early childhood workers and parents with easy-to-understand information and activities focused upon fine and gross motor skill development for 3 to 4 year olds.
  • Contains cutting, colouring, drawing, playdough, pre-writing, along with ball, balance, eye tracking, and body control activities
  • Expectations, support, and guidance on pencil grip and posture, among other skills.
