Back to the books...

There comes a time when one must realize that text books were created for a reason.  Reason being, they serve as a frame of reference and provide concrete basic information.  Today, we are going back to the books.  We will be using The Developing Child as a reference in our early work today.

We've been discussing in class the skills and abilities of kindergartners.  It would be ideal to have a handy reference chart  for future use (such as creating lesson plans) that identifies exactly what children should be able to do.  For today, we will begin building that chart.  Our chart will include ages five through twelve and fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and cognitive development as categories.

Your turn:  On paper, sketch what our chart will look like and label it.  Next, source the following information in The Developing Child and add it to your chart:


  • Fine motor skills ages five and six
  • Gross motor skills ages five and six
  • intellectual development ages five and six
