Product Description
Did you know that fine motor skills in preschool and kindergarten is the Number One best predictor of academic skills and achievement for your kindergarten-age student? (Cameron, et al.: 2012; Grissmer, David, et al.: 2010; Son &; Meisels: 2006) This fine motor advantage lasts at least through the third grade! (Kulp: 1999)

As an Occupational Therapist, I have designed differentiated Winter Skill Builders
◦ Build fundamental fine motor and executive functioning skills for kindergarten-age kids.
◦ Target specific CCSS literacy and math skills in ways that interest and engage even the most reluctant children.
◦ Provide differentiated yet equivalent materials so you can easily provide the just-right level of difficulty and challenge for a classroom with diverse skills.

This FREEBIE includes 10 sample pages.

The entire product includes...
Features:
■ Teacher’s Guide for each of the six units.
■ Occupational Therapy tips and tricks for explicit instruction, developmental sequence, and breaking tasks into their smallest steps so all children can learn.
■ Specific differentiation tools and support.
■ Specific objectives for fine motor, visual motor, and executive function skill development.
■ Detailed table of contents so you can easily find what you need at a moment’s notice.
■ No-prep, copy-and-use printables: 61 pages.

These secular winter-themed worksheets are great for classroom literacy and math centers, morning work, special winter party celebrations, and early finisher work. They are also perfect for occupational therapists to address a variety of fine motor, visual perceptual, and visual memory skills. My students LOVE these Winter Skill Builders.
