Weekly and Daily Sign In Sheets: This packet moves students through a progression of visual motor skills.

This helps students solidify early writing skills before having to write letters. ($4.99)

There are 18 worksheets for line formations ie horizontal, vertical, curves, waves, diagonals, spikes and combinations.

This download is great for push in therapy, therapy homework or consultation services in the classroom. ($3.99)
