Looking for a visual motor integration app focusing on basic shapes?
Shape Up is a recently developed app that provides a cute story with activities that focus on creating geometric shapes. Appropriate for preschool to early elementary aged students, Shape Up focuses on drawing shapes with 3-4 straight sides (trapeziod, square, rectangle, triangle, diamond) with targeted posts to draw on.
Along with a cute story that goes with the concepts of shapes there also is a simple “find the difference” activity. Simple, but nicely presented, this app provides an opportunity to work on visual motor integration.
Gone Free, this app is compatible with iPad, iPhone/iPod. A nice little app to add to your OT iTool Kit.

No longer free 2.99
Many of the apps gone free are free for only a day or two at best! Sorry, sometimes they come around “freed” again!
Thank you for sharing!
