Getting Punchy!

This year I am finding I need to spend a great deal of time working with my students on fine motor development. It feels like each year this skill needs to be worked on more than the previous year. In the meantime the Standards are waiting to be taught along with all the other things we work on in our 2 1/2 hours together. I tried to think of ways to develop fine motor skills while working on the standards at the same, that's not what's making me punchy...;-) But I am fusing the skills together with my PUNCH IT packets. With the Counting pack the kids work on Number Recognition (1-20) and counting objects !:1.  The kids cut out the number card. they read the number then use a one hole punch to count out the numbers. What fun right?
The Letter Sounds pack helps with fine motor again with punching! They cut out the picture, say the name then punch the corresponding letter to match. Then glue the pictures into a booklet in ABC order. There are two booklets, one with the letters lightly printed to scaffold those students that need a little boost. There are blank pages to challenge your more capable students.
Then there's the Syllables pack. There are two booklets in this packet. Each has 22 pictures for students to say the word, clap/count the syllables then punch the numeral that matches the number of syllables.
All the packets are great for Center Work and for Homeschoolers as well.
If you're looking for a multi skill builder...then these packs are going to give your centers a powerful PUNCH!!
