Find the Objects

Here is another great FREE worksheet pack to address Figure Ground, Visual Closure and Visual Discrimination skills. 



In order to complete these worksheets successfully, the child must filter out the visual distraction of the irrelevant objects to focus in on the particular object they are looking for (figure ground perception).  They must also mentally fill in the parts/pieces of any objects that are concealed by other objects in order to identify them correctly (visual closure) and compare the features of similar looking objects in order to distinguish between them (visual discrimination).

Alphabet PreWriting Fun


Pre-writing patterns help a child to learn the directional pushes and pulls of a writing tool required to form letters. 

By drawing various pre-writing patterns within the letters in these drawing worksheets, a child will get pre-writing practice to improve their legibility while familiarizing themselves with the shape and form of the letter itself.

Colored Craft Stick Spatial Patterns



Craft sticks are a wonderful tool for a number of activities. They can be sourced on Amazon (a variety of brands will come up if you search “colored craft sticks”). Your local craft/hobby/art store is also likely to stock them.

If you prefer, you can make your own colored sticks. We have made a template with two of each color stick. Print this out and paste it on thick cardboard, then cut the sticks out.

We have designed 40 FREE cards to use for this activity.
