Ed Emberley Time

A great activity for finger isolation (any finger you choose.)  We inked up our thumbs, then our little fingers, to create thumbprint bodies for crawley critters.  If you have a student who primarily walks around with forearm pronation most of the day, this will encourage them to supinate and look at their inky fingers.
Then we drew our critters, and wrote their names within a small space.  It's a lot more fun to write "Caterpillar" than to write your own name.

By the way, that customed, lined paper at the top of this blog is available, free, at the Handwriting Without Tears website:
