Handwriting Centers Without Writing!
Handwriting Centers Without Writing! was developed to provide teachers with classroom center ideas for the prerequisite skills that strengthen gross and fine motor skills, visual motor and visual perceptual skills, as well as the concepts of directionality.
The product is organized into four components: Strengthening the Core, Hand Strengthening, Visual Motor and Visual Perception Skills, and Directionality Concepts. Each center skill comes with a center chart, which can be posted in the center area and a teacher page that describes the activity and the materials needed, as well as the supporting research. You may wish to make a two-sided document by copying the teacher page on the back of the center chart. The borders of the four components are color-coded for easy reference. The activities within each of the components can be done in any order.
