What educators are saying

Purchased this activity for some independent work time for my son and it is amazing! So fun and engaging for him!
Fun and engaging! I especially like the dot marker pages and that the cut pieces can be glued onto another page for an additional activity. Thank you!

September Fine Motor Activities includes printables for tracing, snipping, cutting, writing, using a hole puncher, shaping play dough, and more! Give your class plenty of fine motor practice with this engaging resource!

September Fine Motor Activities can be used for small groups, in a busy box, at Table Time, and at your writing center. There's a cute Back to School theme your class will love. Teachers rave how the thematic task cards and activities are so easy to prepare and simple to use.


  • TRACING PATHS - Tracing practice with horizontal, diagonal, wavy, and zig-zag lines. These paths also encourage left to right progression.
  • TRACING CARDS - Put these cards on a book ring in the writing center or use them as a warm-up activity for your small group table!
  • SNIPPING STRIPS - Do you have students who are just beginning to use scissors? These Snipping Strips will be helpful as the kids “snip” short lines and CUT with a single motion.
  • CUTTING PRACTICE SHEETS - Easy cutting lines for young preschoolers and students who need more confidence with their cutting skills! Great for keeping in a student portfolio to document progress!
  • HOLE PUNCH CARDS - Give your students the opportunity to use a different fine motor device! These Hole Punch Cards are fun to lace, too!
  • PLAY DOUGH MATS - Children love molding dough into these different shapes.
  • PLAY DOUGH PATHS - Roll your play dough into long, thin strips and follow a simple path. Want some extra fine motor practice? Use these Play Dough Paths with a dry erase marker and try to stay inside the lines!
  • PRE-WRITING CARDS - Have students practice making the basic strokes that comprise most letters, numbers, and shapes.
  • FINE MOTOR ACTIVITY MATS - 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. These are always a class favorite!

Preschool, PreK, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students will benefit from having the regular fine motor practice this resource provides.

Perfect for improving fine motor skills in the classroom and at home!
