DO YOU HAVE A STUDENT WHO LOVES MINECRAFT? I know I have quite a few. This workbook is based ALL around Minecraft for hand skills for handwriting without the handwriting! Do you have students who love Minecraft and are motivated by this game? This 21 page packet focuses on FINE MOTOR, COORDINATION and HAND STRENGTH for handwriting without the handwriting. You will help Steve mine for ores, collect ores to craft, connect the carrot to the pig, connect creepers and enderman.
Older students will enjoy this packet. Students work on drawing shapes in small spaces and use pencil control to draw pencil paths by staying in between the lines.
This does not feature any weapons (ie: sword etc). This only features a pickaxe for mining so this is appropriate for public school.
This is perfect for independent centers, full class, therapy, early finishers, handwriting practice, and therapy groups.
This type of activity can support hand strength, visual scanning, visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills, age appropriate grasp, crossing midline, and fine motor skills.
