Hello, Infant 1 families!
January was a great month where we worked really hard on fine and gross motor skills. Our hard work and persistence in the classroom, as well as the support and dedication from all of our parents, have benefited our infants in profound ways! All of our infants have made great strides in these areas over this past month. Fine motor skills (movements made with small muscles of the hand) such as pushing the tummy off of the floor to lift the head, picking up a toy, holding things purposefully, transferring objects, and eating with a spoon or hands are skills that enable infants to make the whole body movements and become more stable. Gross motor skills (movements made with the larger and stronger muscles of the body) such as rolling over, sitting up, crawling, pulling up, and walking are all skills that enable infants to begin to explore the world in new and educational ways.
