The aim of this investigation is to confirm that the BAPNE Method is a valid tool to effectively stimulate fine psychomotor skills amongst pupils aged between 3 and 6. As well as being highly useful for students in early years, we outline a new, high-quality resource to work on fine psychomotor skills in the classroom with pupils. By using this method, we stimulate the frontal and prefrontal lobes of children in early years. In these activities, specific movements are carried out alongside lyrics or psychomotor melodies, using the prosodic stress. In this way, we will mainly stimulate not only the aforementioned brain lobes, but also awareness of one’s own body, hand-eye coordination, writing skills, laterality and the development of executive functions. The type of tasks which are carried out are sequenced so as to achieve early stimulation focussed on four main areas: development of hand-eye coordination, phonetics, gestural motor skills, and facial motor skills. For this reason, we stress the importance of this development and stimulation of fine psychomotor skills in early years pupils thanks to the BAPNE Method.
