Surprise, a short weekend post for you! We have a simple and fun game to improve visual perception and letter E recognition. Find out how to set up your own Eye-Spy-Tray in our last post for the week–E is for Eye.
Here is a post I love by Left Brain Craft Brain if you want to learn more about visual perception.
Objectives: Fine motor skills, Visual processing, Letter E recognition, Increasing attention span
Age Group: Preschool/ Tot School
Small toys and things to fill tray
Letter E’s (I cut out 10 letter E’s from magazines to use)
Other letters (optional)
Magnifying Glass (optional)
1. Fill tray with small toys and ask child to find them. Fill the tray with as little or as much as you want to decrease or increase the difficulty.
We used animal toys because we are working on learning the names of animals. If Mr. Tickles picked up one that wasn’t what we where looking for, we would name it and take it out of the tray. To add some more learning to this activity I would ask him questions about each animal like, “What does the animal say? Where does the animal live? What color is the animal?”
1. Fill tray with toys and sprinkle letter E’s in the tray making sure the letter is upright. Have child find the letter E’s.
