Crazy Pencils! MONSTER THEMED Fine Motor Activities for Center Time! This is a crazy fun file where teachers can print out, cut into 1/4, and put in labs. Works on eye hand coordination to follow a line. Students love this activity - and it teaches them a critical skill of following a path visually. Students can trace the lines to develop eye hand coordination. If you would like to differentiate or grade the activity to a higher level, students can color the path with a pencil. Created by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR at The Handwriting Clinic - this file is perfect for preschool through first grade, and for occupational therapy! 57 printable activity pages.File is 71 pages and includes training handouts on how to hold a pencil, and how to teach grasp on a pencil. The featured freebie in Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR - The Fine Motor Store has more training handouts on how to teach grasp (file is called "Developing a Fine Motor program for Classroom or Therapy").
