Dowel Marker Support
Drill a half-inch hole into a wooden dowel, insert a marker, add two
rubber washers to keep the marker secure and increase student
participation in name writing or art assignments. Add a maker with letter
or number stamps so student can practice writing the alphabet or counting.
Instead of relying upon hand-over-hand assistance, enable students to
select colors and recap makers independently with a weighted marker
holder. Find a plastic container that will hold a one inch base of
plaster paris. Add plaster paris to the container, insert markers cap-end
down and let the plaster harden.
Photo essays make great alternatives to poster projects or term papers
that entail lengthy detail or fine motor exertion. Polaroid cameras
produce photos on the spot for instant satisfaction and results.
Students can use the cameras to document lab assignments or other research
Cookie sheets and magnets give students with
decreased motor skills the ability to participate in many writing tasks.
Students can slide magnetic numbers into numerical order, sort by odd or
even status, attempt greater than or less than problems or add, subtract
or multiply in math class. In language arts, students can use alphabet
magnets to participate in activities such as letter identification,
matching upper and lowercase letters, or spelling tests.
Increase participation in classroom assignments or homework with this
inexpensive camera that takes and develops small photos on the spot.
Insert special film with self-adhesive backing and attach photos easily to
pages in binders, notebooks, poster paper or more!
PVC Pen Holder
a pen or pencil holder from the PVC pipe available at most home
improvement stores and enable students with a gross grasp to doodle, draw
or compose other written work. Drill a 1/4 inch hole into the center of a
PVC tee. Attach this PVC tee and another tee, to each end of a PVC Nipple.
The parts are threaded and will screw together. Thread the thumb screw
into the drill hole. Place a pencil, marker or paint brush into the tee
and tighten with the thumb screw until secure.
