Fine Motor Practice
Posted below are two websites which provides fine motor activities that could be completed within the home environment. Fine motor skills are VERY important for children. Fine motor skills help students complete daily living tasks, such as feeding themselves and managing their fasteners. Fine motor skills are also important for grasping and pinching items such as toys, pencils, and crayons. Lastly, fine motor skills are also related to pre-writing and handwriting activities.
Examples of fine motor activities could be completed with simple household items:
1. Placing coins or cotton balls into a plastic container
2. Paint with a a Qtip or cotton ball
3. Stringing cereal (fruit loops, cheerios) on a string or pipcleaner
4. Peel fruit (orange)
