Visual Discrimination Pack for Critical Thinking


*NOTE: Printable/Downloadable Resources ONLY

Visual discrimination is needed to notice big and subtle differences. It helps people notice the color, size, position, and forms of images and objects. It also helps children with reading letters, words, and eventually sentences and stories. When teaching children how to read the alphabet letters, having the ability to differentiate similar looking letters will improve and speed up their reading journey. Some letters are very similar, which can cause the little ones some confusions. The same is true for numbers. So improving children’s visual discrimination skill through various activities is very important.

  1. Visual Discrimination Cards: Start with level one. Ask the child to identify the object that is different. After mastering that, ask him/her what makes it different. Move to the next level as the child progresses.
  2. Matching Mat: Ask the child to place the cards on the matching images
  3. Puzzles: This is self-explanatory

If your child is very young, you could start with the matching mat, move on to the puzzles, then the flash cards in shaa Allah.
