This is the perfect file to differentiate instruction! And with a little creativity this file can be used for so many wonderful uses within a classroom or therapy - all while working on academic goals.
Tongs activity - use tongs to place blocks or manipulatives on the circles. Encourage a tripod grasp!
Coloring activity - use a crayon to color each circle, in a circular pattern to encourage dynamic grasp. 8 grasp training handouts included
Punch dot activity - use a golf tee, corn cob holder (1 prong cut off and the other filed blunt) to punch on each circle. Once mastered, there are many punch dot files on TPT in Jan's store, with smaller dots.
Bingo marker activity - use bingo marker to dot the dots in abc order
Q-tip activity - use a q-tip dipped in paint to dot or color the dots in abc order.
Sponge stick "Paint a Dot Stick" (from www.discountschoolsupply) has the perfect circular sponge on the end of a stick to dot the circles in abc order.
Use your creativity! 25 lower case abc order pages, 25 upper case abc order pages, 10 grasp development training sheets for how to develop pencil control with a dynamic tripod grasp. 73 pages in all.
