when you purchase the Fine Motor Centers BUNDLE!
What is Find and Push?
Thanks so much for viewing my Fine Motor Centers: Find and Push. 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 Push sheets 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 push pins of some kind to complete the task. It is also recommended that you place the punch sheets on cardboard or foam sheets. 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 Push?
Find and Push 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.
