Who Needs Paper?

Sometimes it's fun to put paper aside and use other classroom materials for fine motor work:
I drew the circles and the student kept a bunch of pennies in her hand while placing a single penny inside each circle.  Can slightly incline the board to facilitate more wrist extension but not so much that the pennies slide off...

Saw this in a first-grade classroom--had no clue you could use dry erase markers on a cookie sheet! 

If/when your students get ho-hum about activities toward the end of the school year, change up the work surface to perk up their alertness levels.
