Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Observations were completed in six kindergarten classrooms on two separate days to determine the time kindergarten children spend on fine motor and handwriting activities. The results found that children spent 29.67% of the time engaged in fine motor activities (academic and nonacademic), of which 30.75% of the time was spent in handwriting activities. The kindergarteners spent 12.29% of the total observed time engaging in handwriting activities.
