Visual Perception Worksheets

Activities That Improve Focus, Concentration and Visual Attention
Visual perception refers to the ability to make sense of what is seen with our eyes. Visual perception skills are essential tools in reading, writing, and math success as well as everyday tasks such as completing puzzles, cutting, drawing, completing math problems, copying information from a board, understanding symbols, dressing as well as many other skills.
Visual perception can be broken down into different categories including the following: Form Constancy, Visual Attention, Visual Discrimination, Figure-Ground Perception, Visual Form Constancy, Visual Closure, Visual Memory, Visual Spatial Relationships. There are several overlaps between different categories of visual perception, and some activities can be used to boost more skills.

Visual Perceptual Skills

Here is a home/class program for visual perceptual accommodations

Some good websites to check out are:

www.eyecanlearn.com.  It has good visual activities.

You can find some visual perceptual activities in the shop as well.

perplexus 1

Visual Spatial Relations: The ability to determine that one form or part of a form is turned in a different direction than the others.

Can cause problems with:

  • difficult for the child to plan actions in relation to objects around him/her;
  • difficulty with spatial concepts such as “in, out, on, under, next to, up, down, in front of.;”
  • difficulty differentiating between “b, d, p, q;”
  • leads to poor sight vocabulary;
  • contributes to difficulty reading charts, maps and diagrams;
  • results in inconsistent symbol reversals and transposing numbers or letters
  • losing place on a page;
  • difficulty finding what is being looked for,
  • attending to a task,
  • remembering left and right,
  • math computations if more than one digit;
  • forgets where to start reading.

Activities to do:

  • navigate through an obstacle course
  • copy 3-D block designs
  • place plastic letters into a bag, and have the child identify the letter by “feel”
  • identify numbers or letters that have been made incorrectly in several places, and the child has to identify each place the letter has an error (you can do this on a chalk board and the child can erase the errors and correct them).

Compensatory Strategies:

  • graph paper can help with spacing of letters or math problems
  • papers with raised lines can help with finding the space of letters or margins.
  • visual cues of colored lines on margins or a sticker can be used.
  • you can use a “glue” raised line on the margins of a cutting task to help          them “feel” where to cut.
  • Use visual cues (e.g., colored dot) to indicate place on a map or chart, or puzzle pieces.
  • Draw directional arrows to help with directions or placement (e.g., for letter formation).
  • Wear something on one arm to indicate direction (e.g., watch on left arm to indicate left direction.
  • Allow oral arithmetic.

Sequential Memory: The ability to remember a series of forms and find it among four other series of forms; Visual sequential memory reflects a child’s ability to recall a series or sequence of forms.

Can cause problems with:

  • ability to sequence letters or numbers in words or math problems,
  • remember the alphabet in sequence,
  • copy from one place to another (e.g., from board, from book, from one side of the paper to the other),
  • spell,
  • perform math,
  • retrieve words with reversals or when out of order,
  • remember order of events after reading (which affects reading comprehension).
  • The child would also tend to forget assignments and forget steps that are shown in an activity.

Activities to do:

  • complete word search puzzles that require you to look for a series of letters
  • Play games such as Bingo which require you to look for a specific form.

Visual Discrimination: Visual discrimination refers to a child&#;s ability to differentiate between objects and forms. It gives us the ability to notice subtle differences and to identify if something does or does not belong. For example, this skill is important for identifying and exchanging money, and matching and sorting objects.

Can cause problems with:

  • problems in dressing (i.e., matching shoes or socks),
  • correcting errors in school work,
  • distinguishing similarities and differences in the formation of letters (i.e., letter reversal) or objects,
  • discriminating between size of letters and objects,
  • matching two dimension to three dimension such as alphabet letters.

Activities to do:

  • have them “grade” a paper that has letters formed incorrectly (size or shape) and circle them with a red pen.  Only look for size errors first, then formation errors.
  • make flash cards with a correct letter on one side and an incorrectly formed letter on the other side. Have the child try to draw the letter correctly, then turn over the card to see if it is right. (Have them write in sand or with finger paint to make it more fun)
  • use a popsicle stick with marks on it to help the child figure out what is good sized space in his writing.
  • Use a green marker to make marks on the child’s writing sample to indicate good spaces, and a red marker to make lines for poor spacing.  When child understands, let them “grade” their own paper.
  • have the child identify words or numbers spaced incorrectly on the lines (above or below), and circle the errors with red pen.
  • work on size by having them identify words with incorrect capitals inside them.
  • work on margins by having the child use a 1” cardboard boarder on top of his paper to visually guide him.  Have him grade a paper by marking out any letters outside of the writing margin.

Form Constancy: The ability to see a form and find it among other forms, although it may be sized different or rotated; Visual form constancy reflects a child’s ability to recognize forms, letters, or words regardless of their orientation (i.e., if a form were upside down, sideways, inverted, etc.).

Can cause problems with:

  • would make reading difficult as the child might not recognize familiar letters when presented in different styles of print (fonts, size, or color);
  • result in being slower to master the alphabet and numbers;
  • lead to difficulty recognizing errors;
  • cause confusion between “p, q and g”, “a and o”, “b and d”;
  • making a transition from printed letters to cursive letters;
  • assuming the size of objects regardless of their distance;
  • looking at things from an angle;
  • understanding volumetric concepts such as mass, amount and quantity;
  • recognizing things that should be familiar when environmental conditions change.
  • An issue with visual form constancy also reflects attention and focus, which makes it difficult to complete seatwork.

Activities to do:

  • Practice building block designs according to a diagram or a model.
  • Complete construction-type activities such as Duplo, Lego or other building blocks; K-Nex, or Erector Sets.

Compensatory Strategies:

  • give the child what is to be copied on a paper laying flat on their desk, rather than the board,
  • or copy from another child’s paper
  • try to use the same font or style of letter on handouts as the child is used to in school.  (like the “a” here is not like a D&#;Neilian “a”.)
  • when learning a letter form, have the child work in the same plane as it is being taught (they need a vertical board if that’s what you’re using)
  • teach them to tilt their head or eyes if they have trouble visualizing something at a certain angle.

Visual Memory: Visual memory reflects the child’s ability to store visual details of what has been seen in the short-term memory. If details aren’t stored, there will also be difficulty accurately recalling, and in some instances reproducing, all of the characteristics of a given item.

Can cause problems with:

  • may have problems reproducing figures (letters, numbers, shapes or symbols) from memory causing the child to mix lower and uppercase letters.
  • Deficits also influence copying from a text or chalkboard,
  • replicating information on worksheets and tests,
  • comprehending reading,
  • dialing a phone number,
  • remembering sight words,
  • transferring learned words from one medium to another,
  • remembering what was read,
  • reproducing figures from memory.
  • The child would tend to copy only one letter or number at a time from the board, and would benefit from a visual model of the text to be reproduced (e.g., model placed on desk or on sheet above on the page that child has to copy from, alphabet strip on desk, mini word-wall on desk, etc.).
  • Subsequent storage of visual information in the long-term memory is important for performance areas including community mobility – identifying familiar surroundings such as a neighborhood or school campus and successfully navigating one’s way

Activities to do:

  • playing games such as Memory.
  • if working on recalling formations for letters, have them try to draw it with their eyes closed to remember the shape of the letter.
  • Use bendable things such as pipe cleaners to form letters and shapes (because feeling a shape can help them visualize [see] the shape). The letters can then be glued onto index cards, and later the child can touch them to “feel” the shape of the letter.

Compensatory Strategies:

  • make verbal descriptions of the letters (m and n have humps)
  • placing a memory strip on his notebook or desk, or other area where he has difficulty recalling something.
  • if they can use a word processor, have them use spell check to help find misspelled words.

Visual Closure: Visual closure reflects a child’s ability to look at an incomplete shape, object or amount, and fill in the missing details in order to identify what it would be if it were complete.  This skill requires abstract problem solving.

Can cause problems with:

  • student’s ability to write,
  • to use worksheets or test forms that are poorly photocopied,
  • copy something if he/she cannot see the complete presentation of what is to be copied,
  • complete partially drawn pictures or stencils,
  • spell,
  • complete assignments,
  • complete dot-to-dot worksheets or puzzles,
  • identify mistakes in written material,
  • perform mathematics (including geometry),
  • solve puzzles.
  • The child tends to leave out parts of words or entire words, and leaves out parts of worksheets.

Compensatory Strategies:

  • Have a completed project placed near the student, as well as step-by-step instructions to complete a novel project.
  • Arrange seat placement right in front of the chalkboard, dry erase board, or overhead projector.
  • Present cleanly photocopied worksheets and test forms.
  • Give student a “helpful hint” about mistakes in order to give him/her a second chance to correct some of the errors, due to his/her difficulty recognizing errors in written material.
  • Work with puzzles of any kind.  Begin with simple ones and then increase the number of pieces or the type of puzzle (3-D).  Make sure the child has the concept of finding and describing the sameness and differences between puzzle pieces (flat, cornered or curved edge, type of color, words or objects on the piece.)
  • Complete mazes of increasing difficulty

Figure Ground: The ability to perceive a form and find it hidden in a conglomerated ground of matter; Visual figure-ground refers to the ability to locate and identify shapes and objects embedded in a busy visual environment, or the ability to attend to one activity without being distracted by other surrounding stimuli.

Can cause problems with:

  • may have difficulty attending to a word on a printed page due to his/her inability to block out other words around it,
  • difficulty filtering out visual distractions such as colorful bulletin boards or movement in the room in order to attend to the task at hand,
  • difficulty sorting and organizing personal belongings (may appear disorganized or careless in work),
  • over attend to details and miss “big picture”,
  • or overlooks details and misses important information (e.g., word recognition, locating one object within a group, finding place on the page or skips pages and sections, noticing punctuation),
  • difficulty copying from the board and may omit segments of words,
  • difficulty recognizing misformed letters and uneven spacing,
  • difficulty with hidden picture activities,
  • may lack visual search strategies,
  • have difficulty locating a friend on the playground or finding a specific item in a cluttered desk.
  • An issue with visual figure ground also reflects attention and focus, which makes it difficult to complete seatwork.

Activities to do:

  • Play games such as Bingo which require you to look for a specific form.
  • Find hidden pictures in books such as Where’s Waldo, I Spy, or in the Highlights Magazines.
  • Find objects in a cluttered room or in a cluttered picture.

Compensatory Strategies:

  • when working on a chalk board, make sure it is erased good so that the child has less clutter to look at
  • keep their desk clear of distractions
  • sit their desk in an area closer to the front to avoid the distractions of other students and their desks. (Use a study carrel if needed).
  • eliminate as much of the visually stimulating classroom wall decorations as possible, especially near their desk.
  • have the homework area at home in a distraction free place
  • keep interesting objects behind closed doors
  • don’t have a worksheet cluttered with “cute” decorations
  • place a colored place mat under their materials they’re working on
  • use a red marker to outline boundaries for coloring, mazes or cutting tasks.
  • place only one activity on a page
  • make a construction paper screen to block out most of the page, so only the one item is in view.
  • when working on puzzles, present one piece at a time, and cover unneeded pieces of the puzzle.

**Encourage the child to practice the habits of keeping their work area clear, use the easiest kind of paper, and block out distractions on worksheets.**

What is visual closure and which activities can help them build this concept?

I come across this query quite often and have given deep thought to its role in early learners’ and preschoolers’ learning process. A study was done at Aston University, that indicated the connection between visual closure disorder and mathematical skills too.

So, the basic things first. The visual closure can be explained as the brain’s capability to identify a completed picture in mind from its tits and bits provided. This mental ability is quite useful for acquiring spatial reasoning skills, and for building a sense of size and shape of the objects. It does tell a thing or two about symmetry in objects, the idea of spatial axes, and about early geometry concepts.

To put in simpler words, the visual closure is your ability to solve a jigsaw puzzle or fill the missing parts of a structure or shape.

Importance of visual closure in learning

Visual closure is a basic skill that may be found poorly developed to undeveloped in children or adults suffering from Dyslexia or visual perception disorder.

Children who have poor visual perception may face difficulties in forming whole letters or recognizing them. Eventually, their ability of reading and writing spellings or words are affected, which shakes their confidence in the initial learning stage. When a child’s intelligence is assessed on various grounds, visual closure is one of the aspects that tells about the learning requirements of a child.

So, children are said to be suffering fro a visual processing disorder, when they are NOT capable of:

  • assessing spatial relationships between the objects and surroundings
  • differentiating letters from their mirror images
  • visually discriminate the objects on the basis of color, sizes, shapes, etc.
  • differentiating objects from the backgrounds (the simple process of reading letters on the blackboard is a challenge!)
  • identifying a face when any of the facial features is omitted from the portrait or a person’s picture.

That is why it is important for the parents and educators to know about visual closure and learn ways to strengthen this skill in children from an early age. With the help of constant practice and perseverance, the problem can be managed appreciably, and children can become more shape intelligent or acquire spatial reasoning skills.

One of the interesting ways to develop the visual closure ability in children is by doing activities that give a better practice of shape, pattern, or form recognition.

Listed here are some visual closure activities designed to help children overcome the challenges they deal with on a daily basis.

6 must-try visual closure activities

1. Do pattern or sequence completion problems

A number of pattern and sequence cracking problems can be designed to create in children a better level of awareness about the visual discrimination ability, or visual closure. For example, take a suit of clubs and show the child its shape.

Now, prepare some cards on which the three branches and base of a club are drawn in parts. You can ask the child to join all the cards together and achieve the club figure as a result of this activity. This activity can be modified to show the child the fragmented versions of various daily use objects like a mirror, or some letters like L, D, etc.

2. Play with rods

You can take a collection of plastic rods of small size. And make some incomplete letter shapes. You can ask the child to fit the rods in an incomplete portion to create the letter.

You can start by showing the outcome first and give children a matching exercise. Later, with progress, you can ask them to do the completion of letter activity using their memory.

3. Complete geometric figures

In this activity, the teachers draw a set of incomplete geometric figures on a whiteboard. Children are then asked to draw the connecting parts. As a part of initial practice, worksheets providing a clue in dotted form can be given to the students. Once they have become comfortable with strokes, grip and overall tracing activity, you can given them incomplete figures without dotted lines to draw.

connect the dots game

Magnetic Base 10 manipulative or teaching material can also be used on the white board to create different shape completion challenges. These manipulatives allow teachers to create animals or birds shape too in origami designs. Such activity opens up the children’s minds to absorbing shape and design ideas.

4. Guess the animal game

In this activity, you will collect stuffed toys based on animal designs. You will use a hiding place like behind the door and will take out a portion of the stuffed toy so that the animal is visible partially to the kids.

The kids can see, guess, and tell, which animal it is, based on the part visible to them. This activity is a lot more fun when done fast and helps boost fluency in shape recognition ability as well. You can make a child your assistant and ask him or her to keep score to include an element of competition in the activity.

5. Solve jigsaw puzzles

jigsaw puzzles

There are a number of jigsaw puzzles available in the market. You can use these puzzles to give children a visual closure activity.

Starting from simple targets like completing words or sentences, you can move on to give story completing puzzles to kids where the objects and surroundings are brought together. Children learn spatial reasoning concepts better with story-based jigsaw puzzles.

6. Play visual discrimination quiz

Visual Closure ability can be enhanced if the children are given conditions which help them stimulate their brains better. Quizzes are an interesting way of providing proper stimulus to the brain. There can be many kinds of quizzes that you can design. One is a sequence completion quiz where kids can be asked the next pattern in the sequence. AA, ABA, ABBA, ABAB are some of the sequence designs that you can pick to challenge the kids into visual closure activity.

Color and shape discrimination are two other quizzes you can give. You can employ colorful chips for this activity. Divide a page into two columns. Stick on one side a chip of color of your choice, and ask the child to paste the same colored chip opposite it.

You can also play match the column quiz for shape discrimination. In this, the kids are asked to match the shapes by connecting them with lines. The introduction of threads can be an interesting way of engaging the students in matching the column activity.

Best advantages of visual closure activities

Visual closure activities are packed with multiple benefits, in fact. Kids, during their early learning stage, are required to display an expected level of proficiency in terms of recognition of numbers, shapes, colors, orientation, etc. All these basic skills are employed in reading and writing of numbers and words. With a better level of math literacy and language literacy, children can be groomed further into confident readers, writers, or drawing experts. Apart from better literacy, visual closure activities help children by:

  • preparing them for real-life situations like walking, climbing stairs, catching a ball, etc.
  • boosting their ability to visualize the height or size of objects
  • offering relatable learning of the concept of light, dark, slow, fast, etc.

So, visual closure is not just a basic parameter for assessment of a child’s early learning abilities. It is the strong base on which the foundation of a successful life is laid. It enhances the grasping abilities of children, allowing them to stay at par with the peers studying with them at the same level.

Visual Closure Activities

activities for visual closure skills

Visual closure is the ability to correctly perceive an object or word, even when it is partly hidden.

This ability helps you to quickly make sense of what you see, even if it is not all visible to you, which means you do not have to see every little detail in order to recognize something. 

You use this skill when:

  • you can figure out what a road sign says, even when the writing is partly hidden by graffiti
  • you can make sense of words on a smudged page
  • you can recognize an object even when you can only see part of it
  • you can find a missing item when it is partly hidden


In school, kids need this skill in order to:

  • read more fluently
  • quickly recognize words by their shape or general arrangement of letters
  • remember letters and words, especially sight words (together with visual memory skills)

Often, a worksheet will be given that requires the child to complete a picture by drawing in the missing lines. This is NOT a visual closure activity! 

A truly visually-based closure activity should be done completely visually, withoutdrawing. This requires the brain to correctly perceive what the completed picture/word would look like, without using motor skills.

Use the simple activities below to help develop your child's skills!

These visual perception activities are intended to encourage your child's normal visual perceptual development.
If you suspect your child has visual perceptual delays, please seek a professional opinion.


Preschool Activities with Toys

Use toys that your child is already familiar with. I like to use toy animals as shown below.

Partially hide 2 or 3 toys under a cloth without your child seeing, then ask your child to identify/name them.

Activities With Shapes and Peg Puzzles

Make sure your child knows the names of the shapes that you will be using!

Younger children can use simpler shapes, while older children can be challenged with harder shapes.

Partially hide a few shapes under the cloth and ask your child to name them, or to decide which one fits in each shape-sorter hole (as shown).

In this activity, I partially covered 4 shapes, and placed 2 whole shapes on the side. I then asked the child to decide which partially covered shape would match the uncovered ones. 

Visual closure preschool activity

You can also make use of simple form puzzles or peg puzzles.

Partly cover the puzzle pieces, and ask your child to identify which piece would fit into each hole.

Visual Closure Worksheets

For older kids, printable worksheets can be useful. You may be able to find some "hidden pictures" or similar worksheets in activity books that you already have at home.

The most important thing is that the worksheets must require visual recognition, and should not require pencil work to fill in missing lines!

Which zoo animal is hiding behind the bars?
Find the pairs (partially hidden by the clouds) that match the top pair.

Visual Closure Games and Activities is my favorite printable visual closure resource, that I use over and over again!

Some of the activities are worksheet style, while others can be cut up to make a Lotto-style game for younger kids.

They are mostly suitable for preschool and kindergarten children, depending on the ability of the child.

Visual perception-all important in thinking and learning-- allows us to take in our environment, organize it, and make sense of it. To ensure success and focus in reading, spelling, math, comprehension, and physical activities, including hearing a sound and visualizing its source, students need exercises in perception to stay sharp and keep focused. This unit contains key skills such as spatial relationships, figure ground differentiation, sequencing, visual integration and discrimination, pattern copying, visual closure, and mazes. Don't allow your students to fall short in this critical area, which eventually may result in learning difficulties. You'll find all the necessary no prep practice here for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and up.
