Sometimes you have a book that is just so loved. We have a few VERY loved books in our house and one of those books with the dog-eared corners is Dr. Seuss’ Wacky Wednesday. We used the book in a visual perceptual activity and worked on the skills needed for handwriting. Visual perception is made up of many different skill areas that are used in virtually every functional task we perform. Handwriting is just one of those tasks that relies on appropriate development of visual perception. Kids can use creative activities like hidden pictures and books like Wacky Wednesday to improve visual perception. Try this Wacky Wednesday Visual Perception Activity and have fun working on handwriting skills in a wacky way!

Wacky Wednesday Visual Perception
The book is one that we were handed down in a bin of clothes and toys that another child had outgrown. It was apparent that the copy of Wacky Wednesday was a favorite book for this other child. When we started reading it, we were hooked too!
Use the book to visually scan and locate funny items while addressing the visual perceptual skills needed for handwriting. Then, ask kids to use those funny items they’ve found to work on handwriting skills. Kids can list out the funny items that are wacky. So, while searching and finding the funny images on each page, they can build the visual perceptual skills needed for handwriting. Then, they can visually shift to write lists while addressing neatness and legibility in written work.
Many times, a motivating subject or activity can be just the thing that helps kids want to practice handwriting. Use the funny book that is Wacky Wednesday as a motivator.
If you are looking for more creative ways to work on the visual perception skills addressed in hidden pictures and relay them into handwriting skills, you are in luck!
