#posturalcontrol or core strength/ stability is a must for so many successes! Playing with friends, handwriting, sitting in a desk for long periods, staying seated at a table, eating, playing in the playground, respecting personal space, waiting your turn in a line or in circle, and so many sports! A great way to built control is to practice it! Obstacles that require kiddos to get on and off the floor and balance are great challenges for our core!
Orbeez are a fun way to practice prewriting strokes or letters and numbers while getting some interesting tactile feedback at the same time. Research shows that tactile input helps store information to long term memory.
