Visual Perception: Body, 3D, 2D

One of the common factors with puzzles, parquetry blocks, and writing of letters/shapes is the visual concept of space which includes direction (top, bottom, right, left, etc), part to whole and vise versa, matching, and much more!!!!  How do we learn these important concepts?  We learn with our bodies first.  Then we take this knowledge and use it in three-dimensional play with blocks and toys, and finally transfer it to paper.  We will be looking at how this happens in the next posts.  Stay tuned!
