Description & Features

The activities in this mind-building 200-page book help develop your students' recognition of letters, words, numbers, and similar/dissimilar objects. It also improves sequencing and visual memory skills. These quick, engaging activities are designed specifically for shorter attention spans. Directions may be read aloud as needed. This book includes eight progressively more challenging skill sections with pretests and posttests to evaluate students' beginning and ending skill levels.  Answers and definitions of technical terms used in the book are included.

     •  Visual Discrimination

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"Amazing! Our family had to reluctantly pull my daughter from vision therapy last year, because the non-covered expense totaled more than $6000 for three months. We simply couldn't pull it off. I made it my goal to find ways for her to practice visual discrimination and concentration skills. We stumbled upon your Visual Perceptual Skill Building® Books 1 and 2 with great delight. She has confidently sailed through each one, feeling empowered and assured that she has skills to attend to visual work in the future. It's turned me on the quality and creativity of The Critical Thinking Co.™ These resources set children up for a solid education and eventually the means to evaluate the world at large! Thank you!" - Michele, TX
"These exercises are presented in a clear, uncluttered format, perfect for the easily distracted." - Deb, Shelton, WA
"My 2nd-grader is doing great with this series.…He recently wrote that Visual Perceptual Skill Building is his favorite book and that critical thinking is his favorite subject." - Carole, Waterford, MI
"My students loved these activities so much they ASKED to do them every day. I've seen them applying these newly acquired visual skills in other areas, too. Just last week they found the buried treasure on a map that they navigated through on their own!" - Michelle, Monterey, CA
"My son is homeschooled in first grade and Visual Perceptual Skill Building is perfect for him. Each activity encourages my child to use higher-level thinking and I see this overlap into his everyday problem-solving skills. The Critical Thinking Co.™ truly does empower the mind! I will be ordering from this company for years to come!" - Krista, Oregon
