In each section, we have given examples of the skills we would expect to see emerging in babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. This will enable them to progress through from the building blocks of each core skill (basic skills) through to achieving the simple and advanced levels.
Rolling and crawling give babies their first taste of having the independence to explore their environment and choose their own activities. Keep reading to find out how the skills for rolling and crawling emerge, and what games you could play to encourage skill development.
Learning to control the head in a prone position
Learning to rotate the trunk with increasing upper body strength and body awareness
Rolling for fun
This includes rolling with a partner, down a slope, on the flat as an experimental way of traveling, and being rolled up in a rug/blanket and 'unrolled'.
Gymnastic style exercises
Such as pencil or log rolls on mats or on the floor
Crawling into tunnels and over objects on the floor
