Sum-sum-summer time means beach time! In this FREE Beach Visual Discrimination Activities and MORE pack, kids will have the opportunity to work on a variety of skills!
In this post, we’ll look at each page and the skills addressed in this FREE Printable Pack.
*This is a FREE 5 page digital download PDF. No physical items will be shipped.*
First, let’s look at the first page in the Beach Visual Discrimination Activities and MORE pack!
By making 2 copies of this page, children can work on matching, crossing midline, play a game of memory, add a fine motor component by clipping matches together with clothespins, and add a vestibular component by using a scooter, hopping, skipping, jumping, or crab walking, etc. to take a picture across the room to it’s match! So many options!
Next, is page two of the Beach Visual Discrimination and more pack!
Let’s work on visual memory and sequential memory with this free printable! Print, cut, and laminate these 6 cards, then spread the 16 pictures from page 1 around on the table. Show your child one of these cards from page 2 for 10 sec then flip it over. Can your child find the pictures they saw and place them in the right order? This activity also works on attention and focus! What strategies are they using to help them remember the picture sequence? If you want to work on listening skills, instead of showing the child one of these visuals, verbalize the pictures you want them to find!
Page 3 and 4 of the FREE BEACH ACTIVITIES are next!
It’s time to add listening, following directions, and working on prepositions along with writing practice! By using page 1 as the game sheet, print off either page 3 or 4 depending on your child’s writing needs. Page 3 has boxes and page 4 has adapted 3 lines to assist with line orientation and letter size. Directions are on these pages. For instance, “What’s above the star fish?” When the child finds the picture on page 1 by either pointing or using a penny or game piece, they find the word on the writing sheet and write it! You can also add your own spin to this activity by only using page 1! Laminate page 1 and give instructions like: “Put an X on the turtle then put a circle around the crab.” (using a wipe-off marker). Grade the activity by how many steps you ask them to follow at a time. You could also have a penny, small sticky note, paper clip, etc. in front of the child and give them directions like: “Put the penny on the star fish, the paper clip on the sun, and the sticky note on the octopus”.
Finally, let’s see what page 5 is all about!
This free printable is similar to page one, EXCEPT these pictures are more similar requiring increased concentration and focus for the activities! Time to take visual discrimination skills up a notch!
