The starting point is graphomotricity, which is integrated within fine motor skills (that is, the precision of movements, fundamentally eye-hand coordination). The development of the “fine gesture” is carried out through exercises that require precision, speed and control of movements in the hands and fingers. These exercises develop a series of skills necessary to subsequently make the first graphics. Which takes place simultaneously with spontaneous drawing or drawing with models and which precedes writing itself. You start by learning how to handle materials: that is, the instrument with which to draw the lines and the support on which these lines are made. The instrument must become an extension of the hand: the child must learn to hold it between the fingers and slide it on a support. The instrument will be neither hard (since it would impede the movement of the hand) nor excessively soft (since the strokes would be blurred). At first, we make finger paint, soft wax, and very thick hexagonal pens available to children so they learn to position their fingers as correctly as possible. Later, we will use finer waxes and other types of pencils. The support is the base on which the child learns to perform the exercises. At first, it should be large (a piece of brown paper spread out on the floor or a blackboard hanging on the wall) to allow you to make large, firm movements. When the child manages to dig this and increase the control of the arm, we turn to use smaller supports (specific tabs for this purpose). In general, the exercises are short and attractive and respond to the child’s preferences. The first strokes are voluntary movements of the hand and arm. It begins with the simple and combined sticks and continues with circles and spirals until reaching the most complex, the loops, with the aim of addressing, then, the first letters and numbers. Performing the exercises requires a quiet and relaxed environment. Children should adopt good body posture and an attitude of concentration. The music helps a lot: it plays music with very marked rhythms and quick to perform short strokes and intermittent; and slower, softer music for long, undulating strokes. Finally, carrying out the exercises previously in the air, in the sand or in flour, facilitates the subsequent execution of the strokes on a sheet. It is important that the child has acquired these skills to facilitate the passage to Primary in conditions to acquire the knowledge established in this new stage.

As per yesterday reports, Tuju sustained chest and abdominal injuries

“As a result of the accident, the following persons have seriously been injured; Raphael Tuju, aged 60 years had chest and abdominal injuries. Charles Oyaro, bodyguard aged 46 years, had a fracture of the right hand. Austin Oindo, driver aged 33 years, had a fracture of the right leg. Bernard Kariuki Muya, a driver of the matatu, was unconscious,” the police report read in part.
