Abstract

This study is aimed at providing a description about fine motor skill development in four and five-year-old kindergarten students in Surabaya. This study focused on those age group of students as they develop their fine motor skills rapidly during this age (Papalia and Fieldman, 2009). This study is of importance because so far there is no concrete data concerning the condition of fine motor development of four and five-year-old kindergarten students in Surabaya. The observation instruments were based on fine motor developmental milestone by Gerber, R.J., et al. (2010). The participants consisted of 110 children; 51 children of four years old and 59 children of five years old. Samples were taken from 5 regions in Surabaya. Result indicated that, out of the four-year-old participants (N=51), the biggest percentage (27.45%) was 14 participants who had low level of fine motor skills, 13 participants (25.49%) who had moderate level of fine motor skill, 12 participants (23.53%) with advanced level of fine motor skill, 8 participants (15.69%) having high level of fine motor skill, and other four participants (7.84%) with very low level of fine motor skill. Among five years old participants (N=59), the majority of them, with a total of 50 participants (84.75%) had advanced level of fine motor skill. Five participants (8.48%) had moderate level of fine motor skill, 3 participants (5.08%) had high fine motor skill, while other participants (1.69%) had low level of fine motor skill.
