Activity: Hole Punch

Today we did this simple yet complex activity. We took a piece of paper, drew a line, then asked S to punch holes on it. It took a lot of hand strength to punch the holes and then a lot of concentration to punch the holes along the line.

Modifications: This is an easy activity to change how easy or hard it is. Simplest: punch random holes in paper. Harder: create a picture & punch holes to follow the picture. Numbers: ask them to punch certain number of holes. Use punches to work with adding or subtracting. Shapes: ask them to punch out a shapes. (Either draw a shapes & ask them to follow it or ask them to punch it out on their own).

This is an easy activity I’m sure we will do again!
