Product Description
Children need to practise a lot with visual-spatial ability.
This is a geometrical activity to make the basic geometrical shapes: square, rectangle, triangle.
Take your pen. Look at the visual directions. Draw the line 1 or more steps in the added direction. Which shape have you made?

More or less each page has the same difficulty.
You begin with 1 or 2 steps horizontally or vertically.
Then you have to draw a diagonal line to make a triangle.
More difficult: make 3 to 5 steps.
In the last pages you have to draw two shapes in one figure.

Working with children with down syndrome it seems to be a very difficult task to understand the meaning of 1 or 2 steps within the grid.
One of my pupils just says 1,2 and stops in de middle of the space.
So I go outside and draw the grid on the playground with chalk. Now we walk two steps aside. After a while, back to the worksheet.
