The human hand is a wonderful instrument


The Grade 1's have been making a bookmark out of felt and ribbon in their handwork lessons this semester.


The children thread their own needle and use the running stitch to work slowly, carefully, and neatly. This is a disciplinary subject that helps train the eye and hand. This aids in developing beautiful handwriting through developing important fine motor skills and the children find great satisfaction in their efforts as they overcome challenges in order to create something beautiful and useful.
