Visual Tracking Activities for Kids – A Fun Brain Boosting Roundup

Visual tracking activities for kids are some of my most popular downloads in The Free Printables Collection.


In the past I’ve compiled a number of roundup posts that gather specific skill-building activities all in one place. Skills like auditory memory, visual memory, and spatial awareness, for instance. I thought now might be a good time to roundup some fun visual tracking activities as well.


This list of fun free printables for kids to help improve visual tracking skills can go a long way to improve children's ease of reading.


You can read more about visual tracking in How to Help Children Strengthen Visual Tracking Skills, and Why.


Or, take a look at just a few signs your child may struggle with visual tracking:

  • skipping words or lines while reading
  • reading words out of order, even inserting random words from lines above or below
  • reversing letters and/or words, for example, saw = was or ten = net


Even if your child doesn’t show any signs of struggle, it never hurts to have some fun AND strengthen important learning skills at the same time.
