Every classroom has children who can benefit from activities that support fine motor development and help them improve eye-hand coordination. This activity will assist your young students in strengthening their finger muscles.

Print the pages on cardstock. Gather pegs and a glue gun. Cut round cards (color or black and white) and mount them on the edge of the pegs using a glue gun.

Name all the objects and language presented and invite the children to clip the objects on the matching picture.

Alternatively, attach clear hook and loop fasteners and invite the child to fasten images onto the matching. This exercise is beloved by littles and is also very helpful to young children who are working on mastering their pencil grips.

Line art activity – to prepare colouring and cutting exercise, gather scissors, glue stick, colouring pencils. Invite the student to colour, cut and paste them on top of the matching images.

Tracing worksheets – print on cardstock and laminate. Supply an erasable pen. Invite the child to trace the words and color corresponding images. Alternatively, print pages on regular printing paper and invite the child to trace corresponding words. You might also like to cut words and images and invite the child to match the correct pairs.
