Practice your handwriting skills by writing letter and word treasures in your Captain's Log!
Begin by putting the game board together - it is made up of 4 large puzzle pieces! Now shuffle the Captain's Orders cards (exercises to develop underlying components for successful handwriting skills) and place them next to the board. Pick your ship and dock it by the Mainland on the game board. Spin the spinner to select a letter and sail your ship to it. So, if you spin to "c", then move your ship to the Alphabet Island of "c." Now draw a Captain's Order card and perform the exercise, as the Captain wants his crew members in tip-top shape! Now "collect" your treasure by writing the letter in your Captain's log (a laminated sheet). Continue spinning and move from island to island. The treasure word can also be written in the Log. Make this game as long or as short as you want. Decide beforehand how many treasures you want to collect.
Instructions include Game Alternatives, ideas for multisensory tools for handwriting, educator notes and more!
Handwriting fun in the form of a great game! And...a great feature of this game? It has many. many variations from which to choose from! Makes playing great fun each time!
Great for using during a TeleTherapy Session! This game has both handwriting and gross motor components. This game is played by sailing ships to each island in order to collect treasures but before landing on the island the player must perform a gross motor activity. Like other games this one would involve the therapist controlling the board and the client performing the actions but the handwriting piece would need to be modified further in that the client would use whatever paper they had available to them or the therapist would provide a copy of the list used in the game!
