Gross Motor Development Skills
Really Good Stuff has a variety of gross motor skills activities and toys for students. By providing students with the tools to work on their gross motor skills, you set them up for a lifetime of success. The term“gross motor skills”refers to the coordinated movement of muscles in the torso/core, arms, and legs. Basic movements such as sitting, standing, and walking all use one’s gross motor; so does playing sports or raking leaves. By mastering these skills with gross motor activities in the early childhood classroom, they lay the groundwork for both whole-body movements (e.g. running and jumping) and fine motor skills, like holding pencils or paint brushes.
