Product Description
What is the Fine Motor Bundle of Centers?

Thanks so much for viewing my Fine Motor Centers. This bundle is designed to offer a fun and engaging way to practice fine motor skills. You will be able to use these fine motor centers as morning work bin idea, early finishers, small group and/or as an independent center option. The Fine Motor Bundle includes five packets: Find and Flash, Find and Punch, Find and Push, Find and Transfer and Find and Tweeze. The centers will require basic classroom supplies: hole punchers, push-pins, pom-poms and tweezers. The students will need mini squeeze flashlights for the Find and Flash packet. There are color version or black/white versions included for the centers. You also have the option to print the black and white centers on color paper. Before adding these centers into your classroom, you will want to extensively teach how to play the centers correctly. Below you can view the research on using these centers to build fine motor skills.

What does the research say about Find and Flash?

Over the last several years teacher have begun to notice a difference in their students as they come to school for the first time. And you know what? They are right! Children in larger numbers than ever before in recent history are coming to school and they do not have the foundational skills they need to be successful! Fine motor skills are one of the areas that are lacking. Teachers notice this most in the classroom in how their students are holding their pencils and their ability to form letters. To demonstrate how behind children are below is a list of how children grasp things and what that pattern emerges.

Fisted pattern-developed by 12 months
Pronated grasp pattern 2 to 3 years
Static Tripod by 3 ½ to 4 years
Dynamic Tripod by 5 years

Often times kindergarten teachers will notice that many of their students come in holding their writing utensils in a fisted pattern. This is a sign of the student being behind where they should be for their age developmentally. So, essentially we are asking them to run before they can walk if we require them to use a pencil before they know how to grasp it! Students working with the Find and Flash packet and Find and Punch packet help to work on hand strength.

Included centers help to separate the sides of the hand and in-hand manipulation. Why is this important? Like every other part of your body you have to be able to stabilize something in order to move something. For example, kids have to be able to stabilize their trunk before they can move their arms. The same is true for the hand. Students need to be able to stabilize one side of their hand (where their pinkie and ring finger are) in order to move the other side of their hand (index, middle finger and thumb). Students need to have dynamic movement when they write. When working with the Find and Tweeze, Find and Transfer & Find and Push students will work on separating the sides of their hands.
