Teeny Tiny Connecting Squares
These 1/3' squares come in handy when you're working with a student who really needs to practice better pinch. Of course, they can always trick you and use their thumb and middle finger for pinch instead of their index finger! Oh well, we took turns guessing what letter the other person was creating and that added to the interest.
This student works real fast and her in-class handwriting shows it. When you have lots of anxiety about life you tend to rush through things so you can check them off your to-do list.
