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 &amp Meisels: 2006) This fine motor advantage lasts at least through the third grade! (Kulp: 1999)

As an Occupational Therapist, I have designed differentiated SPRING Skill Builders

◦ Build fundamental fine motor and executive functioning skills for PreK to first grade-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.


■ 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, print-and-use resources: 71 pages.

Literacy Skill Practice:

☞ Matching, identifying, and labeling capital and lowercase letters.

☞ Left to right sequencing with gaze shift to the next row.

☞ Alphabet sequencing.

☞ Sight word matching.

☞ Sight word reading.

☞ Identifying initial sound of CVC words.

☞ Writing capital and lowercase letters, using go-dots to support starting at the top, an essential aspect of conventional letter formation.

Math Skill Practice:

Identifying shapes

Matching, identifying, and labeling numbers: 1-11, 1-14, 1-85.

Sequencing numerals: 1-25.

Writing numbers 1-25, with go-dots to support starting at the top.

Adding 2 numbers up to 10.

Subtracting numbers 10 to 0.

Fine Motor and Visual Motor Skill Practice:

☞ Develop both a dominant hand and a helper/ stabilizing hand.

☞ Coordinate both sides of the body.

☞ Use eye muscles to track lines.

☞ Use eyes to efficiently shift gaze between objects (two or more places).

☞ Coordinate vision and movement.

☞ Perceive shape and space by vision.

☞ Build hand strength adequate to maintain a pencil grasp, to push, and to adjust the necessary force.

☞ Use both proprioceptive and kinesthetic feedback to adjust and correct pressure and movement.

☞ Use specific cutting skills

Executive Functioning Skill Practice:

☞ Sustain attention

☞ Plan movement and sequences

☞ Implement cognitive flexibility in using a plan

☞ Use working memory

☞ Use self-control

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