Spatial sense math lessons - Left, right, middle, top left, center

Feel free to sift through our growing collection of spatial sense math lessons – left, right, middle, top left, center and other directions. Our videos can be fantastic study aids for your children to help them develop their spatial and visual intelligence. You can find more of our high-quality videos about several math topics once you sign up at as a member.
You might be surprised at how infrequently spatial sense is taught to children. You’ve likely even encountered a handful of grown adults who struggle to differentiate between left and right, or west and east. Likewise, kids can get confused about these concepts. Luckily, a bit of effort in studying and practicing their spatial sense and directions can easily clear up this confusion.
We discuss spatial sense topics with simplicity and efficiency in mind. All of our spatial sense math lessons – left, right, middle, top left, center on this page only need two to five minutes to explain the concept and help you practice the skill through their accompanying exercises.
Each video is narrated in a clear and pleasing fashion, with a friendly voice that can instantly set kids at ease with a session of studying. We introduce our topics using only simple and basic English, as we intend for each video to be approachable to younger learners and ESL students. We also utilize all sorts of helpful visual aids – including educational toys and illustrating things on a whiteboard – to better explain the concepts of spatial sense to our viewers.
See that angry but adorable puffball on the thumbnail of each video? Your kids can consider it a stalwart buddy that’ll be by their side as they learn about spatial awareness.
We have prepared an introductory guide on learning about the spatial sense and different positions. Directions such as the left and right are often confused with each other due to a vague understanding of the object to which the directions are relative. Children will discover the concept of body-relative directions – deciding which is left and right based on their own perception.
They can contrast relative directions with compass directions – as the directions of North, West, East and South remain constant no matter how one is situated.
There’s far more to exploring one’s spatial sense than the directions, however. Another basic skill is determining whether an object is inside or outside something.
Spatial sense can also concern the ability to locate objects in a map or grid, and understand how one can use icons and symbols to represent various objects in a map. Having an idea on how much space or room a certain container or platform has, and how to organize various objects to fit into these locations, is another key sub-skill with great practical utility.
Feel free to use our spatial sense math lessons – left, right, middle, top left, center – to help build your students’ spatial intelligence. You can even share our videos with friends and family members to help them clear up any confusion on telling left from right or other directions apart.
