A favorite time for many young children in school is arts and crafts time, the time when they get to cut and color and paste and glue. These activities help children develop their fine motor skills, which they need when they begin to learn to write. Unfortunately, quite a few gifted children dislike arts and crafts. My son was such a child. When he was in preschool, his artistry consisted of things like quickly coloring or painting an entire paper orange, coloring one red spot in the middle of that and calling his work of art "Storm cloud on Jupiter."
If your child is like mine, you can use - and encourage the teacher to allow - other kinds of activities like building with construction sets like Duplos and Legos. These kinds of manipulatives can enhance fine motor skills as much as coloring and cutting!
