Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Spatial Relationships perception is the ability to identify the position of two or more visual stimuli in relation to oneself and/or in relation to each other.
In these worksheets, the child must analyze how the circles relate to each other in order to copy the colors correctly.
Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.
To complete these worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one circle or color at a time within the busy field of all the other colors on the page.
There are 4 ways to complete these worksheets:
1. Coloring Option
This is a great activity to work on refined isolation of finger movement. You will need color pencils.
Have the child color in the corresponding circles in the blank pattern.
2. Q-Tip Painting Option
This is a great activity to work on distal fine motor control, grip patterns and force modulation in addition to visual perceptual skills. You will need Q-Tips and paint.
Dip the Q-Tip into the paint and press it into the corresponding circle in blank pattern.
The child must make one dot per circle.
3. Push Pin Option
This is a great activity to work on fingers/thumb strength and arch formation of the hand. You will need push pins and a cork board or thick cardboard.
Place the worksheet on a thick cork board or a couple of thick cardboard sheets.
Give the child one pin at a time so that you can watch that they remain safe. Have them press them into the corresponding circles in the blank pattern.
4. Sticker Option
This is a great activity to work on finger dexterity and bilateral coordination. You will need various color circle stickers.
Have the child pull a sticker off the sticker sheet and place it over the correct corresponding circle in the blank pattern.
