We have a fun and exciting St. Patrick’s Day activity packet that will give your child and students the opportunity to build their visual and fine motor skills.
The St. Patrick’s Day Visual and Fine Motor activity packet is for parents and therapists who want fun, playful activities to foster a child’s visual processing skills and improve fine motor development for handwriting.
A child needs both skills for future handwriting and reading development to track words on the page, space words and letters, and hold a pencil correctly.
Visual Processing and Fine Motor Benefits
A child’s visual processing is how kids process information through their eyes. Kids who struggle with visual processing skills have trouble copying notes from the chalkboard. They may also have a difficult time with:
- Identifying words
- Leaving out sounds and letters
- Directionality of letters and numbers
- Identifying shapes, letters and numbers
- Visual memory (can’t remember what they saw)
Kids also need a good foundation when it comes to their fine motor skills. The visual system and fine motor development need to work together for better handwriting. This is why working both areas at the same time is important.
- Trouble spacing letters and numbers
- Weak hand strength
- Often gets tired after writing a few words or letters
- Unsure of how to use correct strokes and curves
- Can’t feel how the letters are written
Strengthening both the visual system and fine motor skills at the same time can get both areas working together for more advanced handwriting development. This St. Patrick’s Day activity packet focuses on each area to help parents and therapists know the level of the child. It can help determine the child’s strengths and areas that need improvement.
