What will my child learn with the Summer Pom Pom Mats worksheets?
Aside from the enjoyment, they will benefit a lot from the Summer Pom Pom Mats worksheets!
Fine motor skills
You have probably seen these words many times, but it is indeed one of the most important skills that should be developed in children, as it involves movements and coordination of the small muscles of the body. If these small muscles, particularly in the hands and fingers, are well-developed, kids can do a lot of things with ease! Like writing, feeding themselves, tying their shoelace, brushing their teeth, and a lot more! Now, how do the Summer Pom Pom Mats worksheets help develop fine motor skills? It uses small tongs to pick up and place pom pom balls in the worksheet to complete the pattern. The "pinching" motion when using the tongs, as well as opening and closing it, makes use of the small muscles in the hands. This helps improve their fine motor skills. Read more activities that help develop fine motor skills here.
With repeated practice, kids learn and remember colors! The Summer Pom Pom Mats worksheets are lightly-colored to let preschoolers recognize the color of pom pom balls they should use. As you guide them, you should also say the name of the colors aloud to help them remember it, or ask them the color as they pick a new one.
The Print & Go Summer Pom Pom Mats include 12 colorful worksheets with cute, summer-themed patterns! As kids go through each worksheet, they will begin to recognize patterns, repeat them, and complete the picture! They should also be able to recognize the image formed after they complete it.
Tracing, coloring, and counting practice
After completing the pom pom mats, you can ask your child to name the object and if it looks the same as the picture at the bottom. Instruct him to color it. Then, he will have to trace its name and you can spell and read it to him! And lastly, kids can practice counting by counting the colorful pom pom balls and writing the number in the box at the bottom.
