On a spring day, we went fishing. First of all, we cut colorful fishes. Next, we used colorful paper clips. Every fish had a paper clip with a different color. With a magnet and a spool of thread, we made a fish hook then fishing got started. I was mentioning a color to him and he fished base on the color of the paper clip. It was a good practice to notice small things and also useful for impulsive children.
This wooden toy is engrossing and also fruitful. All children find it fascinating. We work on some skills by the toy; visual spatial processing, fine motor skill, modeling, and creativity, to name a few.
Today I worked with a lovely six-year-old boy who uses CI. I have some plans for his hyperactivity, attention disorder, impulsiveness, cognitive skills and fine motor skills.
At first, I encouraged him to draw several circles in order to make animals home. Green circles and blue (for sea animals). We worked on animals’ names and classified them. He paid attention to sizes of circles and animals. This game improves visual scanning skills as well.
