What is Callirobics for Beginners?
Callirobics-for-Beginners is designed to acquaint participants with the basic lines and shapes that are building blocks for writing. The program is ideal for participants with low-developmental ability or for younger kids that just starting to experiment with "writing."
Stickers were added to the program to enhance the direction of the writing movements and give the participants an extra activity for fine motor skills. Cathy Bollinger, a children's singer, wrote and played the music. With her beautiful voice and guitar, she gently leads the participants through the basic writing movements: down, up, across, and around (circle).
How Do I Select the Right Program For My Child?
Age is not always the factor we need to go by when we work with children. It is important that parents/practitioners match the program to the child's ability and not the age.
