What’s Included:

This pack includes 60 pages of hands-on activities and resources you can use to enhance your classroom for an entire month. These resources have specifically been developed to keep the prep work to a minimum, while providing ample opportunity for your students to build their small motor muscles.

How to Use:

The pack is organized into four weeks, and the simplest way to use this resource is to print it out and place into a three ring-binder. However, you might want to place many of the pages in page protectors for reuse. Most of the pages each week are considered non-consumable and could easily be reused throughout the years (Geoboard, Mazes, Play dough, Tracing, Cube Creations, Puzzle Pictures, Pom-Pom Pictures x 2, Cuisenaire Rods, Brick Builders). The remaining pages of each week are considered consumable as they require cutting, gluing, dabbing and poking (Dot & Poke, Cut & Sort, Dab & Dot, Craftivity). Many pages are adaptable if you do not have the manipulatives. For example, you can have students color instead of dab, or build.

BONUS Calendar:

For a little extra fun, we’ve included a bonus calendar at the back of the pack. We recommend printing this page on card stock. Students fill out the calendar and glue wiggly eyes on the characters. This is great small motor control to practice squeezing the glue carefully enough to make a single dot.
