shape constancy: workbook 3.1
finishing unfinished shapes - small
Why finishing shapes activities are important
Finishing unfinished shapes stimulate child’s eye - hand coordination. When children draw missing parts of printed shapes, they simultaneously compare their lines with drawings of complete shapes. This evaluation is followed by hand and fingers micro-movements to correct the direction of the line. The whole process strengthen visual-motor integration and fine-motor hand and fingers movements control.
Worksheets and activities in this workbook
Activities and tasks in this workbook's 33 worksheets are designed for strengthening children’s visual-motor integration and basic graphomotor skills by asking children to finish different unfinished shapes. Task difficulty increase throughout the workbook in three ways:
with increasing complexity of shapes (from circle to more complex shapes),
with increasing number of missing parts in shapes,
with increasing length of missing parts in shapes.
