The Muscle Mania® programme is a preschool fine motor classroom based programme which runs twice weekly for the duration of the school year.

The Grade 0 or Reception programme, consists of 64 half-hour lessons which are specifically designed and selected to focus on the development of the preschool fine motor foundations required for the development of handwriting.

Muggle the monkey takes the children on an adventure through their school year, while developing and challenging their fine motor skills in a carefully graded programme that is CAPS compliant.

The diverse nature of the programme includes both manipulatives and Activity Sheets. The Activity Sheets are all process orientated with the focus on the muscles and movement patterns for pencil control and handwriting.  They include graded cutting activities that promote muscle development along with the planning and spatial organisation required to assemble the cut-outs.  In addition the programme includes folding, tearing, ruler work, letter formation (CAPS compliant), and development of muscles and movement patterns for pencil grip and pencil control.

No Reception year class can afford to be without this unique preschool fine motor programme which provides the children with the opportunity to prepare their fine motor skills for handwriting.

The Muscle Mania Programme® has reproducible rights for the license holder and comes as a 24 user programme with all the equipment (excluding stationery) to run the group in a class of 24 children.  The Printing and Number books are included but will need to be replaced annually.  All other equipment is reusable.

Muscle Mania is an amazing programme. It has been carefully structured with clear goals in mind. The variety of tasks keeps the learners interested whilst achieving these goals.  The impact on the learner’s fine motor development and organisational skills is tremendous.  Muggle the Monkey helps to keep the lessons fun though his many adventures!
