Visual Spatial Puzzle Play helps struggling readers and all students strengthen visual spatial awareness with fun, geometric puzzles.

Math and reading require a significant amount of visual spatial reasoning. Do any of your students struggle with the following?

▪ Place value or aligning numbers appropriately.
▪ Interpreting graphs, charts, diagrams or maps.
▪ Reversing numbers, letters or words.
▪ Visual tracking, as in skipping or repeating lines while reading.
▪ Locating items or gathering materials at the end of the day.
▪ Spelling.
▪ Sequencing.
▪ Tracing and cutting.
▪ Inconsistent spacing in written work.

These are just a few signs of potential visual spatial difficulties. Visual Spatial Puzzle Play is a fun way to help strengthen this critical foundation skill.

Use Visual Spatial Puzzle Play while working one to one or in small groups, for early finishers, in literacy centers or even as fun homework. Because it is adaptable to multiple ages and skill levels it is just as fitting for differentiated classrooms and homeschools as it is for therapeutic educational environments.
