Visual Discrimination Pack for Critical Thinking - Free Ramadhan Special (ENDED)

 

As we all probably know, paying attention to details is a very important aspect of learning. To develop this skill, it is crucial for children to be introduced to activities that involve matching, spotting differences on objects, sorting, puzzles, opposites, ordering (putting objects in order), and similar activities.

Visual discrimination is needed to notice big and subtle differences. It helps people notice the color, size, position, and forms of images and objects. It also helps children with reading letters, words, and eventually sentences and stories. When teaching children how to read the alphabet letters, having the ability to differentiate similar looking letters will improve and speed up their reading journey. Some letters are very similar, which can cause the little ones some confusions. The same is true for numbers. So improving children's visual discrimination skill through various activities is very important.

I've put together a pack of three different visual discrimination activities to help you kick start  this crucial learning journey with your child. Because this is a Ramadhan Special, you are receiving this whole pack value of £4.99 £3.99 for absolutely free until after Ramadhan 2018, in shaa Allah.

What does the pack content?
  1. 4 Levels of visual discrimination cards, 23 in total; levels get a bit more challenging as you progress
  2. 1 matching mat
  3. 4 puzzles
  4. Total number of pages: 15
Items You Will Need to Prepare Them:
  1. Printer
  2. A4 card stocks
  3. Pair of scissors
  4. Laminator + laminating pouches
  5. Self adhesive laminating pouches or clear tape

How to Use/Play:
  1. Visual Discrimination Cards: Start with level one. Ask the child to identify the object that is different. After mastering that, ask him/her what makes it different. Move to the next level as the child progresses.
  2. Matching Mat: Ask the child to place the cards on the matching images
  3. Puzzles: This is self-explanatory
If your child is very young, you could start with the matching mat, move on to the puzzles, then the flash cards in shaa Allah.

Bonus
Here's a hands-on project you can also put together for your student/child. It's a visual discrimination project as well. It's basically matching, but a bit more complex because some of the images are very similar. The child would need to differential each image and put the correct one in the corresponding hole.

How to Set It Up and Play:
  1. You would need: A shoe box, box cutter, self adhesive stickers of your choice (make sure they are doubled), storage bag to keep the pieces together. If you don't find stickers you like, print something from the internet. In which case you would need to cut them out with a pair of scissors, glue them, and laminate the other ones.
  2. Stick the stickers on the lid of the box
  3. Cut out holes big enough for the stickers to go through
  4. Decorate as desired (optional)
  5. Play: Put the matching image through the correct hole
I hope this pack and bonus will be beneficial to you. I would really appreciate your opinion after you use it with your child, in shaa Allah. Barakah Allahu feekum. May Allah make us all reach Ramadhan and be of the successful ones.
