To use this free visual spatial and working memory task print out pages 2-4. Cut apart the cards. To practice visual spatial skills, place one card with dots and one blank board in front of the child. The child can use a dot marker, bingo chips or coins to copy the location of the dots on the blank board.
To add in visual memory, the child can study the card with the dots for a certain amount of time. Turn the card over. The child has to remember where to place the dots on the blank board.
There are also blank templates included to create your own patterns to vary the degree of difficulty.
