Size Discrimination using rubber bands
I like this one…
Differentiating size is such an important skill for children to master lending itself to comprehending size in letters, numbers and vocabulary development.
Here’s a simple activity that requires containers of different heights. You could either obtain objects of 3 different sizes to place inside the containers or in this case use 3 different sizes of rubber bands to place around the containers.
My daily work in the classroom are with children on the autism spectrum. In most cases, fine motor skills are often the skill requiring additional practice. So, with that being the case, I try my best to put together activities where 2 or 3 targets are met.
Children using this activity gain bilateral coordination, fine motor skills, visual discrimination of sizes, concentration, independence and increased self esteem!
