Handy Hearts

Valentines Day is tomorrow, so don't let it pass you by without using it for hand skill development.  Have your students imitate hand gestures, requiring fine motor planning.  This one is a simple two handed gesture, using all the fingers together:

This gesture involves separating the sides of the hands, needed to hold a pencil correctly.  Do your students curls in their last two fingers when writing?

Greet each student today with a friendly heart sign and have them imitate you...can they do all three?
