Print Friendly

When I was using the road maps with some students, they had a very hard time following the paths, so I decided to simplify it even more. A couple of these kids had trouble drawing a line from one point to another. I figured a good transition would be having a car follow a road from one point to another.

I have the kids try to duplicate the roads and letters that I make. It is great for working on visual perceptual skills, and the cars are a good motivator.
