Spatial awareness is the ability to be aware of oneself in space. The awareness of spatial relationships is the ability to see and understand two or more objects in relation to each other and to oneself. This is a complex cognitive skill that children need to develop at an early age. Spatial awareness does come naturally to most children but some children have difficulties with this skill and there are things that can be done to help improve spatial awareness.
This resource can be used to help children develop their spatial awareness through observing pictures and recreating them by taking notice of positioning of objects including spacing, rotations, flips slides and turns and overlaps.
I use this resource weekly in my Prep/Foundation/Kindergarten to year 2 classes and collect data based on improvements over time and needs observed at the time.
The resource also assists children with fine motor skills using scissors, crayons and glue.
Level 1 (Easy) - Full colour - this worksheet does not require children to differentiate the shapes as they are the same colour as the image example. Cut and paste
Level 2 (Moderate) - Colour image to copy while working. - Children are required to identify each shape in the image and colour accordingly before cutting and pasting. Colour, cut and paste
Level 3 (Harder) - Black and white only - Children are required to colour how they would like the preview image and then colour the shapes accordingly before cutting and pasting. Colour, cut and paste.
