We love Overs and Unders for building eye movement skills critical for reading. Students will draw a line under a specific object and over the other. We've created one for you with fun spring pictures - instruct your students to draw a line under the sunshine and over the rainclouds, under the rainboots and over the sunglasses, etc. In the beginning, some students may need lines pre-drawn to encourage eye movements and eye-hand coordination skills.
Loop de Loos are one of our favorite vision activities. They can be done at home and they don’t take a lot of time or resources. Have students use newspaper articles, magazines, old homework assignments, etc., some type of printed material. Have students draw a continuous line under each row of text, circling a specific letter or sight word.
The example shows the word “the” being identified in a text.
Loop de Loos (Pre-K) or the Scanning Game (K-2) develop and enhance eye movements and eye-hand coordination skills students use when reading. Draw a continuous line as you loop the flowers. For younger students, draw a line for them to trace so they can practice smooth eye movements. Below is a spring themed activity for you to download, print and use!
