Fine motor skills at the early childhood level have been well-researched. The early childhood years have proven to be vital years of growth and development in a child's life. Studies have also found that fine motor skills have a direct correlation to other areas of development, such as literacy, math, gross motor, etc. Research conducted at Rock Valley Community School District suggests that fine motor skills are an area that needs improvement. This school improvement plan describes in detail the process needed to implement a fine motor program for students in grades Preschool through Kindergarten. With successful implementation, the fine motor skills of young children within the district will significantly improve.
