Tracing shapes tasks stimulate eye-hand coordination and visual-motor integration.

 

When we follow and draw over dotted or other kind of lines, our eyes simultaneously compare emerging lines with original templates. Our brains then initiate fine fingers and hands movements to keep our lines aligned with original shapes. 

The process, in which the eyes visually guide the movement of the hand, strengthens visual-motor integration and fine-motor hand and fingers movements’ control.

Tracing geometric shapes

-

direction

Tracing geometric shapes, while also being attentive to the direction of drawing. Tasks difficulty increase with decreasing size of shapes, and by changing density of dots. In some tasks outer or inner shapes are drawn for help with drawing.
