In-Hand Manipulation – Coins

Here’s a shot from last week when we were working on the letter N.  We did our usual alphabet letter in painter’s tape on our Pergo, and I had the Littles hold about five nickles in their palm of their dominant hand.  They had to use only the fingers and palm of that hand to move the nickel (N is for nickel) between their thumb and index finger and then place it on the N.  This type of activity is the easiest I know for getting those little hands into a perfect Pincer grasp.  Another occupational therapy at home idea for our kiddos struggling or practicing fine motor skills.
