If you are using a screen-sharing platform such as ZOOM™️ or THERAPlatform™️ with your students and telehealth clients, these distance learning handwriting skills activities will allow you to give instruction and also allow your students to practice fun and engaging interactive tasks without extra materials or paper. Directions are included for use on ZOOM. Students can use a touch screen, trackpad, mouse or i-pad.
INTERACTIVE Teletherapy/ Distance learning Handwriting Skills was created by school-based Occupational Therapist, Thia Triggs, and the Powerpoint files will be available electronically immediately following payment. The PowerPoint needs to be used in edit mode, not play mode.
There is so much for kids to learn about making proper letter formations. These activities will help your students learn about three-lined paper, how letters fit within the lines, where to start letter formations, and proper placement of letters when writing words.
