Shoots and Ladders, a finger exercise

This exercise will help you with dexterity particularly with your third and fourth fingers (ring and pinky).  They naturally want to move together but this exercise will help you strengthen all of your fingers but make it easier to move the third and fourth fingers separately.


I like this exercise for dexterity. I also like the name Chutes and Ladders that your student came up with.
Hi Janet -- Thanks for putting this video up! Believe it or not, Jonathan and I somehow managed to forget how to do this scale AGAIN but now we just watched this so we're fine. By the way, did you mean to write "Shoots" rather than "Chutes"? It reminds me of that great book about the importance of punctuation: "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves." A kind of gory way to refer to a panda bear's diet! .... xx Jackie
