In “Rainbow Slide”, the children’s eyes follow moving objects. By doing this activity on pursuit eye movement, children’s visual perceptual skills are developed and their ocular motor control enhanced. Other benefits of this practice include:
In this activity practice, we aim to:
“Rainbow Slide” is one of our automatic adapted exercises. In other words, the level of difficulty of the exercise is adjusted automatically based on the children’s capacities and their performances. Therefore, the children will not find the practice too easy and get bored, 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 according to the child’s learning progress and aptitude, promoting independent and individual learning.
How much time does it buy you by saying “Just one more go”? The answer is probably different for the children and parents! To the participants, “5 minutes” is nothing; to those who are waiting, “5 minutes” is more than enough. Seeing the parents and their children fighting over the use of electronic gadgets is the last thing we want, because after all, we advocate children to learn with fun! Hence, we suggest that before doing the activities, parents and children agree on a time limit for the activity. Once the time is up, the children should take a 30 minute break before working on the activity again.
As the activity proceeds, the objects start falling faster and go in various directions. The background colors begin to vary, and there are more and more falling objects to catch! In the activity, the drilling time on pursuit eye movement will increase gradually, so the children have to be exceptionally attentive in order to complete the tasks!
