Paper tearing is an amazing activity for students to refine their fine motor skills. Tearing paper requires strength and endurance of small muscles in the hand. This activity is necessary for the development of finger muscles. It helps children to enhance their grip on paper with their fingers, increases the strength in their hands and also makes way for more complicated activities like opening and closing zippers and tearing bread into small pieces.
Frequent repetition of activities involving fine motor skills builds a strong foundation for development of writing skills in young learners.
