Three Sticks or an 'A' - Visual Discrimination

Hello..oo to all our Head Start friends and families.  This week we have been looking at Visual discrimination.
Visual discrimination is the ability to identify differences in visual images.  Many parts of learning use visual imagery, including: Reading and writing; Mathematics; Social studies and science; and Social interactions.  Children must be able to successfully distinguish between different letters in order to read and write words. As Winnie the Pooh famously said, ‎“To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks.”
 
 
Want some other great tips on how to practise this foundational skill with your child check out http://www.schoolsparks.com/early-childhood-development/visual-discrimination.
 
DON'T FORGET - Thursday, April 3rd, 7.30pm 
 
Our Busy Bag Exchange is happening.  What's this you may ask??
A Busy Bag is a snap lock bag containing an activity to keep your littlie occupied. Prior to the exchange you are allocated a bag to make and told how many to make. At a busy bag exchange we exchange bags, all going home with a variety of new activities to keep our littlies busy. You must register to be included so here are my details joanne.hawker@ratasouth.co.nz if you'd like to be involved.
 
Have a great weekend and we will see you at the Head Start Headquarters next week :)
 
From the Head Start Team :)
