Inclined surface is best for fine motor skills and pencil grasp
Even before learning letterforms and sight words, writing-readiness begins with fine motor skills and fine motor skills begin with simple scribbling, sketching, and play. When using the inclined surfaces of the Tabletop Easel, this playful practice has the added benefit of helping the hand naturally settle into the proper position for writing. The inclined surface is occupational-therapist endorsed as an ideal way to encourage proper pencil grasp naturally: Writing on a vertical surface helps with proper wrist position, promoting a more functional grasp for kids who are learning writing skills or just need a little extra practice.
Versatile tabletop format fits multiple activities in one small space
A dry-erase board on one side and a chalkboard on the other incorporate all the fun of a full-size easel in a smaller format that sets up anywhere and folds to store. With two different surfaces to draw on and magnet play too, this high-interest easel is designed to keep young artists creating as motor control and writing-readiness grow naturally. With two magnetic surfaces, colorful magnets, and trays to hold the included chalk and dry-erase pen, there is a studio’s worth of art activity in one convenient art station. That means it’s easy for kids to access and lots of fun to fill with artworks of every kind--the ideal encouragement for creativity and self-expression.
