Rainbow Slide is one of the visual perceptual learning materials from ""Write Dacne: Multi-sensory writing activities for children"". These practices provide children with training on eye movements, develop their directional and spatial perceptions, and stimulate their visual recognition skills. Parents and teachers will be provided with learning records and performance reports to monitor the children’s learning progress.
When teaching children to write, accuracy and legibility are the two prerequisites. To write neatly without compromising the writing speed, the hands have to coordinate with the eyes and minds! In “Rainbow Slide”, the children’s eyes follow moving objects. By doing this practice on pursuit eye movement, children’s visual perceptual skills are developed and their ocular motor control enhanced.
In this practise, we aim to:
• Improve children’s dexterity of the eyes with the pursuit eye movement practice which gradually increases the difficulties of tasks
• Enhance children’s attention span by extending the time required on the practice for pursuit eye movement
• Test the children’s eye-hand coordination and measure their reaction time.
As the practice proceeds, the objects start falling faster and go to various directions, the background colors begin to vary, and there are more and more falling objects to catch! In the practice, the drilling time on pursuit eye movement will increase gradually, so the children have to be exceptionally attentive in order to complete the tasks!
Want to know if your kid is making progress? We are here to provide detailed record and analysis on the child’s learning performance. So, don’t freak out, but do chill out by enjoying this practice with your kid! Which one of your will get a higher score is anybody’s guess!
We are automatic adapted exercise！
“Rainbow Slide” is one of our automatic adapted exercises. In other words, the difficulties of the practices are adjusted automatically based on the children’s capacities and their performances. Therefore, the children will not find the practice too easy and get bored, but nor will they feel frustrated because of how demanding is it. Unlike the paper exercise books we have today, the content of the automatic adapted exercise is tailor-made for each child in respect of the child’s learning progress and aptitude, promoting independent and individual learning.
There’s a time limit！
How much time does it buy you by saying “Just one more”? The answers are probably different for the kids and parents! To the participants, “5 minutes” is nothing; to those who wait aside, “5 minutes” is more than enough. Seeing the parents and their kids fighting over the use of electronic gadgets is the last thing we want to see, because after all, we advocate children to learn with fun! Hence, we suggest that before using the gadgets, parents and kids agree on a time limit for the practice. Once the time is up, the kids should take a 30 minute break before working on the practice again.
