I teach a special education preschool class. My students need to work on fine motor skills. To incorporate fine motor skills, I have my students use large tweezers to pick up heart candies and place them on a paper of 100 heart shapes. When they fill one heart shape with one candy heart, and fill the sheet they know they have 100. They get very excited; because they can put their 100 heart candies in a baggie to take home. This activity works on one to one correspondence, fine motor skills, and counting.
