5. A Differentiated Lesson Plan for Valentines Day

Stephanie Geider
This excellent lesson plan starts with Georgia O'Keefe and ends up with flowers with heart shaped petals covered with torn magazine scraps. The activities involved to complete this project include tearing, cutting, identifying colors and tracing. These are all skills that students with disabilities need to develop to improve and strengthen fine motor skills.

6. Cutting Puzzles for Valentines Day

Websterlearning
Cutting activities support fine motor skills, and these fun Valentines activities will keep your students busy cutting, pasting and coloring. The "young love" Valentine puzzle is definitely designed for younger students, but the other two puzzles would be appropriate for older students who need to continue to exercise fine motor skills.
