OCTOBER FINE MOTOR ACTIVITIES help young children to be successful when tracing, snipping, cutting, coloring, and writing. These low prep, easy set-up printables help students practice fine motor skills in a fun and engaging way. The tasks in OCTOBER FINE MOTOR ACTIVITIES are great for small groups at the Teacher Table, in a busy box or morning work tub, for Table Time, and in a writing center.

OCTOBER FINE MOTOR ACTIVITIES features all of the following:

  • Tracing Paths to help students practice tracing over horizontal, diagonal, wavy, and zig-zag lines. Helps with left-to-right progression, too.
  • Tracing Cards are seasonal shapes to trace. Kids absolutely love these when you laminate and put them on a book ring with a dry erase marker in the writing center!
  • Snipping Strips will be helpful for young students who are working on mastering scissors. Fun printable strips have young learners “snip” short lines and CUT with a single motion.
  • Cutting Practice Sheets are simple pages to get students cutting. Short cutting activities so little hands won't get tired. Great for keeping in a student portfolio to document progress, too!
  • Play Dough Paths for rolling play dough into long, thin strips and following a simple path. You can also use these mats with a dry erase marker for even more fine motor practice!
  • Play Dough Mats with fun seasonal shapes for rolling and molding dough.
  • Hole Punch Cards so kids can use a different fine motor tool and work on their hand strength. These cards can also be used for a lacing activity.
  • Pre-Writing Cards will give your students practice making basic strokes that comprise most letters, numbers, and shapes.
  • Fine Motor Mats are the big class favorite! Use the Color mats with pom-poms, small manipulatives, mini erasers, or balls of playdough. Use the Black & White printable mats with dot markers, small stickers, and watercolors. So much fun while working on fine motor skills!

Preschool, PreK, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students will benefit from the fine motor practice they’ll get from this resource.
