What is Find and Punch?
Thanks so much for viewing my Fine Motor Centers: Find and Punch. 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 Punch cards and cut them out. You can choose between the color version or black/white version. You also have the option to print the black and white option on color paper. The students will need a hole punch 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 safely. Below you can view the research on using these centers to build fine motor skills.
What does the research say about Find and Punch?
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 Punch 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 Punch encourages students to build overall hand strength as they press down on the hole punch.
