I have been researching some developmentally appropriate ways to teach three year olds how to hold a pencil. Here are some resources I have come across on You Tube and Teacher's Pay Teachers.
TPT Hold Your Pencil Freebie
Pinterest Pencil Grip Song Freebie
Lakeshore Learning has several great products to build fine motors skills needed for gripping a pencil. My class LOVES to feed the animals with these great products! However, you can do the same thing with materials you already have at home!! For example, tweezers and cotton balls !

This week we have been studying the letter "F' as we wrap up our all about me unit and prepare to move on to "Family"! Here is a peek at what we have been up to. Also, I wanted to share these TPT authors who offer great wearable alphabet resources. My super precious assistant here is wearing a "F" hat that I purchased through The Moffatt Girls on TPT. Next, his necklace (which is hard to see here) was another TPT find from Littlest Scholars
I printed them on red construction paper because our color of the week is...you guessed it! Noah is creating a classroom example for me with his watercolors.
Let's make a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom overhead puzzle with Pattern Blocks!
Find all of the "F"s in our pattern blocks!
