Fine Motor at School

Research shows fine motor skills are linked to success in writing and academics, but what teacher has time to work JUST on fine motor during the busy school day? This board was created to inspire and inform elementary school teachers for how they can incorporate fine motor practice into academic (and pre-academic) subjects such as math, language arts, science, social studies, and more. (Pinners: Please include a helpful pin description & avoid duplicate pins. Thank you for your commitment!)
