Figure-ground skills are related to the ability to locate pictures or items within a larger background. Adequate skills in this area are needed to pick out words from a text, locate a specific item in your desk, and find your backpack in the classroom. Here are some other ways you can work on figure-ground skills at home:
Laundry Fun: Locate and match socks from a laundry basket or full drawer
Scavenger Hunt: Give a list of items for students to find around the house focusing on busy, crowded areas (shelf, drawer, pantry, refrigerator)
Hidden pictures: online or in a book. Check out this Highlights resource to get started! https://hiddenpictures.highlights.com/
