Transferring – Sunflowers!

sunflower7One of the many works we do in the practical life area is that of transferring items.  This may be using a spoon to transfer beans from one bowl to the next or using a sponge to transfer water from one bowl to the next.  The children strengthen their fine motor skills and learn to become more independent in these types of skills.  This is a variation that works as those with more skilled fine motor skills can use tweezers and those on the path of refining their skills can use their fingers.  These types of activities also help to develop concentration and they satisfy the child’s need for order.
