PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Draw What You Saw offers a fun way to incorporate art and creativity with activities that strengthen visual memory. Enjoy 10 different themes, each with 3 skill-building steps: Remember It, Repeat It, Create It.

How it works:

Students first memorize, then draw simple lines and shapes presented to them briefly. They memorize 3 cards per activity. Once finished, students get to see an illustration created from all of the lines and shapes they just drew. The final step is to reassemble their work and draw the illustration, a fun reward for a job well done.

Draw What You Saw helps children reinforce important foundation learning skills, including:

• visual memory
• visual discrimination
• visual figure ground
• fine motor
• attention

Includes:

• Cover page
• Instruction page with suggestions for increasing and decreasing the challenge depending on child’s skill level
• 10 individual Draw What You Saw activities with the following themes:

Bird
Ladybug
Turtle
Fish
Owl
Rabbit
Frog
Bee
Dog
Lion

• Optional “Hide It” template (If you prefer not to cut out the cards for this activity you may hide them instead.)
• Additional information about each learning skill strengthened
• Thank you page from yours truly

I recommend this activity for grades 2 and above. It’s a great resource for educational therapists and specialty educators helping students strengthen visual memory, but is just as fun for upper elementary students in traditional classrooms and homeschool settings.

For younger students or for those ready only for visual memory basics, I suggest starting here:
