Happy Friday! I’ve been working really hard on more fine motor activity packs and I just added this one this week. If you read or watch “Polar Express” or just love celebrating all things Christmas in your classroom, here are some fun activities that add fine motor work to your school day!
1. Paper Tearing: Students will tear pieces of paper from pre-cut construction paper strips and glue them to make smoke coming from the train.
2. Cutting Activities: There are a few different cutting tasks for you to choose from. The first has students cut out rectangles with train cars and glue them onto the tracks.
The second cutting activity is more of a complex shape. Students can color, cut, and glue.
The third task is cutting puzzles. One is a 1-5 puzzle and the other is more abstract. Students can color and cut out the puzzles. Then they can mix them up, put the puzzle back together, and glue it onto a half-sheet of construction paper. You could also place the pieces in a baggie to save and reuse!
3. Line Tracing: Students will trace lines of varying difficulty. You will print the pages on cardstock and laminate the cards so students can use dry-erase markers.
6. Pathway Activities: There are a couple options for these. First, you can have students use mini erasers or small vase filler gems to help the train get to the North Pole. Or, you can have students trace the path using dry-erase markers.
