spatial organization: workbook 3.1
connecting dots - shapes
Why connecting dots activities are important
Connecting dots into shapes stimulate child’s eye - hand coordination. When a child draws a line from one to another dot his or her eyes follow the evolving line and simultaneously compare it with the original pattern. This comparison 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.
Copying patterns in grids stimulate acquisition of space concepts such as length and direction which later play important role in development of writing, drawing, and other important graphomotor and fine-motor skills. Tasks in which children copy patterns by connecting dots stimulate visual discrimination, and contribute to the development of micro-movements perception and kinestetic awareness.
