Perfect for morning tubs or early finishers, these fine motor activities target development of fine motor skills in young children.
This set includes ideas and materials for 18 fine motor task boxes. These simple crafts, task cards, and activities are designed to promote the development of fine motor skills in young children. Simple enough to be completed independently, these task boxes can be used in the mornings when children first come to school, as a quiet break later in the day, or by individual students as they finish their other work. Each task includes a printable label, picture directions, and other materials (such as pattern cards to be laminated or craft templates that are consumable). Many activities require the inclusion of other classroom items such as math manipulatives or craft supplies. Please see the included materials list.
Each of the 18 included fine motor tasks is designed to fit into a standard plastic pencil box. This allows for easy storage and organization. To prepare, print and laminate the activity label and instructions as well as the printable activity materials. Tape the activity label to the outside of the box and the illustrated instruction card inside the lid. Place all listed materials inside the box.
When preparing these boxes, consider how you want to use them. If you want your whole class to work with them at the same time (and you have more than 18 students), choose some boxes to make two of until you have enough for all of your students.
