Uses & Applications
These colorful, easy-to-use materials help parents and teachers:
- Communicate with each other about the child’s progress
- Build a strong basis for art, academic, and athletic skills
- Monitor progress based on developmental “stepping stones”
- Support early prevention, with tools used for children from Birth through age six
- Develop remediation plans for struggling learners
Included in the starter kit are:
- Developmental Teaching Activities - A booklet of more than 250 activities for teachers and parents to use with children from birth through age 6 to help develop solid foundations for art, academics (including pre-reading and pre-writing), and athletic skills. At each level, activities are included for gross motor, fine motor, visual, and visual-motor development.
- My Book of Shapes - Contains 100 geometric paper-and-pencil exercises that preschool and kindergarten teachers and parents may use with children to refine motor, visual, and visual-motor activities development. The exercises help support early prevention of problems and provide an important foundation for the teaching of letter and numeral shapes in the first semester of kindergarten.
- My Book of Letters and Numbers - Provides 100 exercises for use with students in the second semester of kindergarten. The exercises use numeral and letter shapes so that the motor, visual, and visual-motor skills children learn with geometric shape exercises can be successfully transferred to numeral and letter shapes they will use in school.
- Developmental Wall Chart for Visual-Motor Integration - A laminated full-color wall chart of basic gross, fine motor, visual, and visual-motor developmental "stepping stones" from birth to age 6. Serves as a handy reminder for parents and professionals.
- Beery™ VMI Stepping Stones Parent Checklist - A consumable checklist of more than 200 key developmental "stepping stones" designed to help parents note observations of children from pre-kindergarten through early elementary age in non-school settings. Parents may then share this information with teachers to help track developmental progress and design learning programs.
