This resource includes 10 pumpkin cards for preschool and kindergarten children to color and copy as they build visual skills important for academics.
Why are copying skills important for young children?
: Visual perception is a child’s ability to make sense of visual information. This skill is often addressed in occupational therapy. In this product, visual discrimination is addressed as children pay attention to the differences and similarities in the shapes they see on each of the pictures and then attempt to reproduce them as best they can.
Visual motor skill is the ability to use vision to guide hand movements. This is seen when drawing shapes or pictures, when cutting on a line, when coloring within the lines, and when carefully copying letters for handwriting. When a child has trouble with visual motor skills then writing, completing math worksheets, drawing, and crafts can be terribly frustrating.
How do I use this resource?
