This visual discrimination pack is perfect for getting your littlest learners hands-on practice with visual discrimination, which we all know is an essential skill in learning to read. It is designed for pre-schoolers and beginning of the year kindergarteners.
Visual discrimination is a skill that helps students differentiate one object from another. This is a very important skill in learning to read, because when students read, they have to be able to discriminate which features are unique to a particular letter. It also helps in teaching children same and different. It is not a letter identification or sound pack (and it is also not a font sort – for the purpose of visual discrimination, the font on each activity is the same); however, children will be presented with multiple opportunities to see letters when they are categorizing them and the more exposure the better, right?
While doing the activities in this pack, students will work to discriminate between letters to determine which letter another letter matches, or to determine which letter does not belong in a group. Most of the activities are designed to be literacy centers, but they could be used in small group with modification. Both types of activities will aide in their visual discrimination skills and I hope they help your students!
