Are you looking for a fun packet to do that focus on fun hearts for both reversals and gross motor skills? This packet focuses on students practicing reversals with different levels for 25 pages. The reversals focus on mostly b,d,p,q.n,u. This can be used for Valentine's Day or just for student's who enjoy hearts. This has a REPEATING PATTERN, meaning that there are VERY many similar pages (in regards to look, these are all charts with hearts) but none of the pages are the same. (letters change, action changes, or order of hearts). Please only download if you understand this.
Students write the letter below each heart that has a shape. Some of the pages include less hearts and for older students, there are more hearts and more shapes.
There are 13 pages of gross motor packet that include different actions such as jumping, clapping hugging yourself, touching shoulders, and crossing midline. This works on developmentally appropriate skills such as coordination, crossing midline, visual motor integration and directionality.
This is perfect for RTI / MTSS as an intervention for hand strength and pre-handwriting skills.This is great for visual scanning, visual perceptual skills, coordination, visual motor integration and fine motor. This is also a perfect activity for occupational therapists OT, teachers, speech pathologists SLP, special education SPED teachers and other school professionals while working on skills!
This does not specifically say Valentine's Day so you can use this all year long but especially for January, February and March and spring!
