This free printable sheet is much like our space theme visual perception puzzle which is also a freebie for you!
In a visual discrimination worksheet like this one, kids can work on pencil control and motor planning to connect matching flowers by making their pencil go around the other flowers that are in their path. Visual perceptual worksheets that challenge discrimination between space, object features, and coordination of the pencil in motor operations allows kids to foster eye-hand coordination for use in functional handwriting tasks.
Activities like writing on a given space in a page require similar visual discrimination and visual spatial awareness.
Visual perceptual skills are needed for so many functional skills. You’ll find easy and fun ways to work on visual perceptual skills through play here.
Benefits of this Visual Discrimination Worksheet:
Visual Discrimination– Noticing and identifying subtle differences in shapes, colors, direction, and forms is a necessary skill for functional tasks like matching socks or silverware. Visual discrimination is a skill that is essential for handwriting, reading, and math. Children who struggle with visual discrimination may not notice small details or may confuse letters or numbers that are similar like b, d, 2, and 5.
Spatial Reasoning– This skill is what allows us to walk around objects in our path with enough space. Spatial reasoning is needed for handwriting when determining if a word will fit in a given space or if we need to write smaller or move to the next line at the end of the right margin.
Encourage kids to draw pencil strokes around the planets so they don’t touch the other planets with their pencil. Visual spatial relations is a spatial reasoning skill.
Visual Motor Skills– Coordinating visual information with movements of the hands is a skill that is needed for handwriting. Use a writing utensil to connect the matching planets and moons while working on visual motor skills needed for written work.
Visual Memory– Children need visual memory for handwriting, reading, math, and many tasks during the school day. Visual memory is a skill that allows us to store a visual piece of information or a form in our mind and recall the characteristics of that form.
