Fine Motor Punch Dots Zoo Animal Themed a - z sequences by Jan McCleskey, MA, OTR The Fine Motor Store.
Punch out letters in the correct sequence! For beginning learners, this is the perfect file, because students can follow the cued path as they punch. In my store, I have several alphabet punch dot activities but they are laid out randomly. I found that my younger students and students with special needs, needed a cued path. So,I created these adorable paths that cue the student to punch a - z in order. An awesome blend of academic and therapeutic activities - PERFECT for CENTERS! 48 different printable activity pages.
Fine Motor Skills are important! Punch Dots for Center Time or Therapy, is a fun way to work on:
1. Eye Hand Coordination
