Half and Half Design and Color
by Elaine Heller
Here is a unique and thoroughly enjoyable way for young children and older remedial students to strengthen visual perception, fine moter development, and other basic skills.
This sequenced program uses a various geometric shapes - circles and rectangles then diamonds and multiple-shaped figures. Half of each shape is complete, and the child completes the other half be connecting the dots provided in the designs. The missing half may be on the top, bottom, right or left sides of the design, helping students become familiar with positional concepts and part-to-the-whole concepts.
