Objectives (based on the TEKS, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills)
*TLW develop manipulative skills
*TLW (develop fine motor muscles in order to) gain increasing control of penmanship such as pencil grip, paper position and beginning stroke
*TLW develop better eye/hand coordination
This center is basically an extension of the fine motor center. It is great
for fine motor coordination and they love it.
Here's what they do:
*Students use a hole punch to punch holes around the perimeter (of a
shape, letter, or outline of a unit-based object... pig, leaf, tree, etc.).
Then they sew through the holes.
We have put many of our ideas for the Sewing center into book
form. You may download a sample pack from either book on our
Freebies page or purchase the full version from our Bookstore.
