In addition to strengthening the proprioceptive system, use of the Creep Track or Slap Track also helps with students’ visual development. Creep Tracks develop eye movements needed to move from one line of text to another, visual perception needed to recognize objects in different positions or levels, depth perception needed to know how close an object is, and integrates the visual and motor systems.
Educators who are doing In-Person Learning can use their Creep Track or Slap Track to support visual development. Using Domino Dot Cards on the tracks adds an academic twist by helping students recognize numbers. So what happens when we combine Domino Dot Cards, Creep Tracks, and fall? We get Acorn Domino Dot Creep Track cards! We’ve made them in easy to print and download PDFs for a variety of ages.
