Size, Distance & Direction Worksheets

Size, Distance & Direction Worksheets

Spatial concepts help us understand our physical relationship to the objects around us as well as the relationship between the objects we see. Understanding the spatial concepts of over and under, in front of and behind, taller and shorter, and placement will help your child become a good communicator. Not only will they be able to follow directions better. They’ll also be able to explain things better.

Use our worksheets as a springboard for real-life conversations with your child or student. Put their favorite toy behind and then in front of the couch. Give them the words to describe the toy’s placement, and have them repeat you.

Real life is the best teacher, but we understand that sometimes you just need a little help. Use our spatial worksheets to help enhance your child’s understanding of the world he sees.
