Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Memory is the ability to remember what is seen for immediate recall. It involves forming a mental image or picture of the characteristics of any given shape, symbol, object or pattern once the stimulus has been removed.
In the “Missing Word Memory” worksheets, the student must form a mental image of each word on the first page, in order to recall them when they are no longer visible. In so doing, the student will be able to identify which word is missing on the second page.
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 successfully search for each of the words that were seen on the first page when presented with the second page in “Missing Word Memory” worksheets, the student must attend to one word at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding words.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.
In the “Missing Word Memory” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to write the missing word in a fluid and controlled manner.
These worksheets form part of the Visual Perceptual Sight Words Builder 1
