‘Fingergym™ is all about trying’   (Jack, age 5)

The Fingergym™ Fine Motor Skills School Readiness Program is a unique Australian-developed, classroom-trialled, group rotation program that uses fun and motivating fine motor–based activities to help children become more independent in the classroom.

Developed by experienced occupational therapy and education professionals, this program is a must-have for any preschool, kindergarten, prep, or primary educational setting. Fingergym™ incorporates play-based learning to encourage problem-solving by “having a go”, no matter what the outcome. In this way children learn confidence and resilience in the classroom while mastering essential developmental skills.

Includes over 140 activities covering aspects such as strengthening, kinaesthesia, proprioception, spatial planning, eye-hand coordination, fine motor speed, letter and number formation, and cutting.

Published as a book and two-CD collection, the Fingergym™ is based on a firm theoretical background and comes with full instructions, customizable forms, printable templates and sheets, and a timed musical track to guide children through their activities. Helpful curriculum links to such areas as mathematics, science, language, reading, writing, and art allow integration of the program with teaching requirements.
