It is SPRING gross motor time! This packet features an activity for students to perform different actions associated with a FLOWER picture. Each flower matches a different gross motor move. For example a red flower might be “Jumping jacks” and a green flower might be “cross midline”. Students perform each action in the same order as the picture.
There is two versions, one that has less flowers (pages 3 – 9) and one that has more flowers and more rows (pages 10 – 14). This should be printed in color and laminated, so you can use over and over.
THESE ARE THE SAME FLOWER PATTERN FOR EACH PAGE, however, the actions CHANGE with each page. Please note this and please do not download, unless you understand this.
This is perfect for RTI / MTSS as an intervention for gross motor.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!
I am a school occupational therapist who has a doctorate in occupational therapy. I work closely with special education and general education staff adapting material. This is where I get my inspiration for this material. I have used my materials with a variety of children with different disabilities including learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism, sensory processing disorder, ADD, ADHD, visual impairments, deaf/hard of hearing, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and more.
