The majority of our students have sensory processing difficulties and difficulty with motor skills. They need many fine motor activities to address their weaknesses in this area. We want our students to have fun, educational manipulative activities. Children who have issues with fine motor skills have a hard time developing strong muscles in their hands and wrists. Fine motor activities disguised as play make learning fun. Magnetic manipulative tiles help students develop pincer grasp to pick up pieces and create buildings, houses or whatever they can imagine are a fun way to work little fingers and prepare them for writing skills. I want to create a happy, calm, learning environment for my students.
