PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This new Pokey Pin product designed by Mrs. Miner 's Monkey Business piggybacks nicely with the original Pokey Pin Fine Motor Alphabet Centers To Go (Set 1). This set is designed with the differentiating teacher in mind. Having this set allows a teacher to have students doing the same center, but the student who already knows their ABCs, can work on a word that goes with each letter. For example, instead of pinning Aa and a picture of an apple, the higher level student would be pinning the word apple as well as the picture. This is a very simple, yet effective center to set up and once children are introduced to it, it quickly becomes a classroom favorite. All you do is staple the half sheets (provided in this kit) to a colored piece of paper. The children use push pins/tacks to poke holes along the lines on a soft surface. Children are working their hand muscles for this and typically find this activity very enjoyable and calming. They view the end results as magical, especially when hung on a window. Bring fine motor back to your classroom and feel great about it because the children are also working on needed literacy skills. Students love this activity and it buys the teacher quiet time to assess or pull small groups!

I was a little disappointed because it does not have the dots where the child has to punch. For the kids that are still learning I think they need this. I am not sure I will use this.
On  September 30, 2012Mrs Miners Monkey Business answered:
I hope you will at least give it a try! I've done it both ways (dots and no dots) and it is definitely better without them because the dots are never close enough and don't show what the actual picture is on the finished product. If they put the dots too far apart, I make them go back and "fit one in between" all of the dots they've already done and it is never a problem. Give it a try...if you still don't like it, email me at krissyldavis@hotmail.com and I will see what I can do for you. Sorry for your disappointment.

Hi. I got this the other day when you offered it as a freebie during the Jackpot for Appreciation week. Anyway, I'm finally getting a chance to look through all the goodies and noticed letter V has Vv instead of van. I'm not sure if this was corrected later, and if it was, how can I download it again? Thanks!!

Not sure how to add to feedback when the item isn't purchased! I used your idea and printed out the kids' names on a "scroll." Yesterday, when we were painting flower pots for our Moms the kids "pokey pinned" like crazy while we waited for coats of paint to dry!

The kids with fine motor issues sure did struggle, but they can do it!!

Thanks so much for this great idea!
