Theraputty

Many students receiving special education services lack fine motor skills. Theraputty comes in a variety of strengths, from very soft to firm. Each strength is a different color of putty. Theraputty has a different texture than playdough and because of the different strengths muscle tone in the hands and wrists can be built up over time. You can purchase theraputty online at http://www.amazon.com/ Here are a few exercises I did with some students daily. Prior to any fine motor activity such as writing make sure you warm up those finger muscles. Get the theraputty out and work on squishing, rolling, pulling, pinching, stretching, etc. This should be a quick 3-5 minute activity. I also like to hide very small objects in the theraputty for the students to dig through and find. My students enjoyed discovering what was hidden each day.
