We put squishy balls, paper, paint in a container and shook it all up! Once dried, if the child wanted, I cut their painted paper into the shape of a pumpkin. Normally, the kids cut out their own art work. However, we are still working on scissor skills so this time I cut out the pumpkins. They made the stem either by tearing or cutting themselves. For the younger children, I cut the stem and they chose where they wanted to place on their pumpkin.
Visual discrimination is the ability to recognize the details in visual images. These details include the likeness and differences of objects or symbols including shapes and colors as well as size and orientation. We worked on this with file folder games! Young children in preschool need to have good visual discrimination skills to begin identifying letters and numbers by name.
