OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
This activity is perfect for your Kindergartners, First Graders and beyond!
For kiddos who struggle with sensory processing and maintaining regulation after a long day of school, this activity is the perfect addition to help with spelling homework. Movement breaks are so beneficial as they're going to break up the sitting and provide movement that will help your child sustain attention. So to build a movement break into spelling homework, I've written letters on all these pieces of paper and I've spread them around the room. I then had binder clips and went around clipping the letters that spell the word "cat". Fine motor work and movement all while spelling!
For variation, you could use painters tape to tape these letters high on the wall so your child has to jump and tap the letters that spell the word they've been given.
Happy spelling and enjoy!
