The lesson goal is to build fine-motor skills through three fun craft exercises. Fine motor control will help with holding a writing tool and using it to write letters in a controlled manner for skilled penmanship. The first “#1a Pin Exercise” will be having the learner use a push-pin to create letters on paper. The second “#1b Yarn Exercise” will have the learner use yarn to create letters by glueing the yarn to the paper. The third “#1c Beads Exercise” lesson will have the learner glue beads to form letters on the paper. All 3 of these exercises will begin to establish more control by developing finger muscle control. Other fine motor skills to add to students' daily routine would include brushing teeth, measuring ingredients in spoons and cups, mixing ingredients in a bowl, and washing dishes.

Supplies needed: glue, push pin, yarn, scissors and beads.
