Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.
In order to complete the “Pattern Blocks” worksheets successfully, the student must find the words in the pattern in amongst all the other words in the box.
Spatial Relationships perception is the ability to identify the position of two or more visual stimuli in relation to oneself and/or in relation to each other.
In the “Pattern Blocks” worksheets, the student must analyse how the blocks relate to each other (on top, below, to the left, to the right) to find the same configuration of blocks in the box.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.
In the “Pattern Blocks” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to trace the outline of the block pattern in a fluid and controlled manner. Tracing encourages the accurate placement and movement of a pencil on a sheet of paper.
