Activity Idea: Scatter numbered bean bags or index cards around the dd. While prone or kneeling; Ask client to gather, one at a time, and place them in number order. Lots of stop-go action & varied directional work.

Features: - Digital version let's you print out only what you need, as often as you need. - Portrait, landscape; Any age or grade level.
-Easy to use in the classroom or at home so carry over can be 100%!
- Single, School, Practice or Site licence available
Why: You won't believe how much you can do with this little box!Tasks look easy and engaging, but the entire system gets a workout.
How about: Visual scanning, crossing midline, fine motor skills, bilateral integration & sequencing to name a few things to address needed for reading, writing & copying from the board
Activity Idea: Toss all the blocks on the table. Find the white blocks & use only one hand, to manipulate & place dot side up. Or form an X & place the larger colored blocks on top of the smaller white ones. Then move to an empty space in sequential order. Try for speed, alternate hands or use a hand tool.

Have You Taught Your Child How To ....
As school and activities increase, time decreases. Spend time learning and practicing new tasks now so your children can be more independent and ultimately help you out around the house.
Can your child do these activities? Spend some time practicing together around the house:
Hanging up a jacket or shirt on a hanger
Folding a shirt to put in a drawer
Matching and folding socks
Make a sandwich
Mix a drink like iced tea or lemonade
Cook an egg
Help Around the house
Make your bed
Empty the dishwasher
Put away the groceries
Move outside and practice:
Digging a hole with a real shovel
Shovel the snow in the winter
Picking up grass clippings and twigs
Taking out the recycling or trash
Some tasks may be harder to teach then others and what you think is simple may feel like impossible to your child. When teaching a task start out simple and break it down into steps. Or modify it then work up to the actual task.
Use picture direction cards. For example if you are making a sandwich you need pictures of bread, the inside of your sandwich and a knife. Collect your items then place them in order on the counter. Or use your phone- take pictures as you complete the task so your child can use them next time!
Write a story: Your child may understand when listening to a story more so then looking at pictures. For example when folding towels. Johnny takes the towels out of the dryer and places in a laundry basic. Then he finds a open space to fold on. He takes one towel out of the laundry basket and lays it flat on the bed. He takes one side and matches it to the opposite corners. Then he takes another side and matches it to the opposite corners, making a square. Then he moves on to the next one.
Watch a video: Search a video on You Tube. Have your child watch the video, seeing the task in action may help your child complete the task.
Modeling the task: Complete the task alongside your child so they can copy or model what you are doing in each step.
Remember to "Ask Rather Then Tell"for example "What will you use to spread the jelly?" Instead of "Now you need to get the knife to spread the jelly."
