## Reflection: Students with Disabilities How Do We Write Numbers? Writing 4 & 5 Review - Section 3: Practice

As an inclusion class, I have students with a wide variety of abilities.  A concern for many of my students is fine motor skills development.  This has become more apparent in the classroom as we work with writing numerals.  Some strategies that I have been using to help my students as we practice writing numerals include: slant boards, pencil grips, colored dots on their numbers that tell them where to start and where to stop, and a variety of writing tools.  I have also had these students work on various fine motor tasks in the morning including: lacing cards, picking up objects with tweezers, stringing beads and cutting play dough.  I am starting to see some improvement, but it is going to take time for the students to develop these skills.
