Hut perceptual motor skills are l)ein taught in St. Lucie Countv Schools to 1,11TB tirst m ailers who think it's tun and names to balance on a board, or try to slav upright on a revolving board, or to draw great sweeping circles on the blackboard. According to Mrs. Jan Wood, the personable young teacher who has the mammoth job of discovering which tirst graders are having problems with muscle coordination and which are not, the program is a "preventive" one. liv discovering why a child can't take an active part in normal classroom activities, the teachers hope to head off the frustrations and inability that lead to poor grades and lack of interest in learning. The program, a new one this vear in the local school system, is financed by the federal government and is part of the OLD FASHIONED SPARE RIBS PIT BARBEQUE PORK Or BEEF 53 FRESH FU.

The program was offered in Palm Beach County last year and the Kort Pierce program was guided along the same lines that proved successful there. By building up the sensory motor skills, the more complex activities of reading, writing or arithmetic won't be as difficult. Research, according to Mrs. Wood, has shown that motor or muscular coordination has much to do with the way a child will progress in school. For some children to achieve, they must be first t.iught how to learn ind that is where Mrs. Wood and her balancing boards and other paraphernalia come in. Watching the playgrounds crawling with agile youngsters ,heso fall davs, it is hard to imagine any boy or girl not able to sucsslullv make his wav down a six-foot length of board, or able to keep his balance without awkward posturing of his hands, or having a difficult time tracing a big "lazy 8" on a blackboard. But plenty of these same children, whose weaknesses are not noticeable to the casual observer, find themselves struggling to master reading and writing with muscles that don't read properly.
