Help me give my students new puzzles to work on fine motor skills!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students are all from three to five years old. Our classroom is typically their first school experience. The students in our classroom qualify under the education eligibility criteria for autism, with mild to moderate impairments in areas of social skills, language development, and sensory regulation and integration. Our students come from all cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to make our classroom the best learning environment and experience we can for their first school experience.
Our class consists of eight amazing boys and two wonderful girls who all have an IEP (Individual Education Plan) qualifying under the educational eligibility of autism.
Each student has amazing skills and talents. Each student's IEP is created to build from their strengths and support their unique needs. The majority of our students' goals are created to support delays in the areas of social skills, play skills, academics, fine/gross motor, and coping skills.
We are looking for new ways to help our students focus and learn their motor skills. Our students seem to really enjoy puzzles this year. We are using this interest to work on early childhood development and motor skills. Bringing in new puzzles into our thematic units will help our students learn how to use their motor skills, and visual spatial awareness, hand eye coordination, and social skills. Inset puzzles with help with hand eye, and the lacing puzzles will help with fine motor, and also with hand eye coordination. We are also helping to encourage social skills with asking for a turn, turn taking, sharing. We are really looking forward to skill building.
