Supporting students' fine motor development on the Promethean Interactive Whiteboard

Supporting Fine Motor Development on the Promethean Board

As educators, we know that there is never enough time in the day to do everything we need to do. Why not use resources already in ActivInspire to help us?

One of these great resources is the pre-made printing templates where students are able to practice their fine motor skills using their finger or the pen to trace the letters. Students can then use the eraser to erase the black square to discover an image that starts with that letter. There are lines provided at the bottom of the page for additional practice. Students can use the blank lines to print the letter and then press the green checkmark at the bottom of the page to check their work. Or for scaffolding, students can click on the checkmark and trace the letters that appear.

Here's one way you can find a pre-made printing template like the one above.

For another idea about how to support students with fine motor difficulties watch our Youtube video about customizing marquee handles of objects in the Promethean ActivInspire software.
