Do you know about pokey pinning? If not, and you are a PK, K, or 1st grade teacher, you NEED them. They are ready to go centers that I have made that all children can do and love to do. They use a push pin to poke designs in colorful papers. The end results are found magical by children when the light shines through all the little holes that they have created. This set is for shapes, both 2D and 3D, but I have many other sets that focus on other concepts as well.

These are all centers that are SO easy to prepare AND loved by all children. Help build fine motor strength AND allow them to learn and review basic concepts.
