If you are looking for a fun way for your kids to practice their visual discrimination and fine motor skills this summer, try these Ocean Visual Discrimination Clip Cards!
Your students can use this hands-on resource independently during your ocean or animal units as a way to develop pre-reading and pre-writing skills.
Ocean Visual Discrimination Clip Cards:
As your kids match the animal to the shadow or the shadow to the animal, they are identifying the similarities and differences between the pictures.
This is a great way for your children to develop their visual discrimination skills. These skills are important when learning the ABC’s and practicing letter recognition.
As your kids squeeze the clothespins open and attach them to the cards, your kids will also be developing important pre-reading and pre-writing skills including their fine motor skills, finger muscle strength, hand and eye coordination, and more.

Next, they will look at the three boxes below the picture and fine the animal’s shadow. Your children will then clip a clothespin onto the shadow that matches the animal.
When using the second set of clip cards, your kids will pick a card and look at the shadow on it. Next, they will look at the three boxes below the shadow and identify which animal matches that shadow.
