Before drawing a person we practiced matman with the individual foam matmen I made.
Here the students are using the yoga ball and they pushed it back to Ms. Nancy our OT with both hands (hands opened, not fists). They also practiced sitting on their bottoms, placing their hands flat on the carpet and holding their legs up. Ms. Nancy would roll the ball to the kids and they would push it back with their legs.
Here they rolled on to the ball and walked with their hands to get a jack-o-lantern and place it into the larger jack-o-lantern.
Our OT is awesome and has taught me a lot on how to help my kids to strengthen their core and their hands for writing and better posture.
