Visual Perception with Dot Grid Pattern Play
Improve visual figure ground, visual closure, visual discrimination and more. Dot Grid Pattern Play is a multitasking, learning powered printable activity for kids versatile enough for grades 2 through 6. It is just as fitting for differentiated classrooms and homeschools as it is for therapeutic educational environments.
While visual figure ground skill-building was the original intention for this activity, Dot Grid Pattern Play strengthens so much more.
HOW IT WORKS
Children finish the incomplete pattern on the dot grid, then color the specified shapes. Depending on skill level, children may use the final Hidden Shapes page to find and outline additional shapes within each pattern. I recommend that you find the hidden shapes yourself before giving the challenge to your students. Some shapes may be quite difficult to find!
Whether you use this fun learning tool for art class, or basic geometry, to practice using a straight edge or even for handwriting practice (without the actual handwriting) sneaky you will help students strengthen important learning skills along the way.
