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.

Worksheets and activities in this workbook

Activities and tasks in this workbook are designed for strengthening children’s visual-motor integration and basic graphomotor skills by asking children to connect dots into shapes.

Children should not change the position of the sheet, or rotate it, while drawing. They should be encouraged to draw each line in a single stroke, without stopping or shifting the drawing tool.

Activities and tasks follow from easier to more complex and difficult ones.
