Painting with a Pom and clothes pin to help with fine motor control. Encourage the student to make the pom jump lightly on the page. The end result of this lesson, an awesome Statue of Liberty painting done with a stencil. Great for celebrating the 4th of July.
The cutting and gluing of this activity develops the students' fine motor skills. This is also a good activity to use when talking about patterns. This activity teaches the students about another place in the world. It would also be good for the kindergarteners to compare Hawaii's flag to their own state or county's flag.
Grass skirt made out of a garbage bag - this is good for kindergarteners because it helps develop their fine motor skills. In addition to making the skirt, the students can watch a video of hula dancing and learn to hula dance themselves, which meets the standard of using concepts and strategies for movement and performance. It is also a good way to get the students moving since kindergarteners need to move a lot.
