Cartoons

I have found that students who have difficulty with fine motor skills can be successful copying cartoons that use simple shapes.  These cartoons use only 5 or 6 steps.  I usually present these cartoons to the whole class while I first draw each step and then the students copy me.  After we have drawn our cartoon, the students are encouraged to personalize their cartoon adding more details and a background.

After the cartoon has been introduced, the students can copy the cartoon from a computer presentation or cards can be printed and put in the handwriting center.
