This 12 page pack includes fine motor and hand strength activities (punch cards with visual scanning for hole punching every other letter to reveal a word), crack the holiday jokes (using a code students must scan to replace the letters), and listening to directions (students are given a coloring page, you can read 1, 2, or 3 step directions.)
This type of activity can promote visual motor, fine motor, hand strength, visual perceptual skills, crossing midline, letter recognition and coordination. The listening activities also require students to use auditory comprehension, short term memory and attention to task.
This is perfect for RTI / MTSS as part of an intervention. This could also be used in a center or whole group lesson. This is also a perfect activity for occupational therapists OT, teachers, speech pathologists SLP, special education teachers SPED and other school professions while working on skills! This could be used for a winter or holiday party or for homework before break. This does not specifically say Christmas so you can use this in a public school classroom.
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.
