Transitions

Fine motor skills examples

Fine motor skills are small movements — such as picking up small objects and holding a spoon — that use the small muscles of the fingers, toes, wrists, lips, and tongue.

Gross motor skills examples

Gross motor skills are the bigger movements — such as rolling over and sitting — that use the large muscles in the arms, legs, torso, and feet
Transitions help students move from one activity to another in an orderly way.
