Children from 3 years of age already take the first step to learn to write. The child follows the pre-milled swing exercises with the attached pen. The necessary manual dexterity for holding the pen and writing movements is thus created.
Use, advantages, areas of application for this Montessori material:
- Work either with the left or right hand
- Swing exercises as a preliminary step to writing
- Montessori material for children from 3 years
- Practice hand-eye coordination
- Sensitize fine motor skills
Scope of the swing exercise:
1 learning board made of MDF with milled swing exercises, approx. 30 x 20 x 1 cm
incl. 1 pen made of red plastic, approx. 8 x 1 cm
Instructions for the swing exercises
- Practice Pin Retention
- strength dosage train
- develop fine motor skills
- training hand-eye coordination
- Concentration ability to expand
The lines and patterns are felt with the fingertips and tracked.
Retracing with the pen:
The lines and patterns are retraced with the pen attached to the board.
Modification for larger hands:
The small pen is probably too short for adults and seniors. A ballpoint pen without a refill (which the practitioner gets along well with / which lies comfortably in the hand) can be used here.
4 exercise variants by turning 90 °:
The range of exercises can be expanded by simply turning the board 90 degrees.
Hidden lines - exercise strength:
the board is covered with greaseproof paper (or other thin paper that still shows the lines) and the pattern is traced with a pencil. The pressure on the pen must be dosed so that the pen writes, but the paper is not pierced by the pen tip.
