What is Find and Flash?
Thanks so much for downloading my Fine Motor Centers: Find and Flash. This packet 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. To prep the centers, simply print the Find and Flash sheets. You can choose to leave them loose or place on a metal ring. There are color version or black/white versions. You also have the option to print the black and white option on color paper. The students will need mini squeeze flashlights of some kind to complete the task. 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?
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! Find and Flash is designed to help children develop the muscles that they need in order to have a more mature grasping pattern when holding a pencil. Find and Flash encourages students to build overall hand strength as they press down on the flashlight button using their thumb and index fingers.
