I need help providing my students with items which can help make a difference in everyday learning! We are in need of engaging math activities to be used during discrete trials, small group and math centers. Because children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) struggle with receptive language or understanding verbal instruction, I want to focus on teaching math skills using concrete manipulatives and visual structures to allow the students to "see" math during instruction. Some of the skills we are working on include counting, sorting, number, color and shape identification, addition, patterns, more/less and quantity discrimination. The Counting Boxes Set would be a wonderful addition to the classroom Math Center as it provides a meaningful context for the students (i.e. apples/trees, candy/jars) while reinforcing concepts such as counting with 1:1 correspondence, patterns, grouping and simple addition. The Learn to Count Picture puzzles are also a great resource as each self-correcting puzzles gives students a visual guideline of where to place the pieces. These puzzles not only support learning but the chunky wooden pieces make the activity accessible to students with fine motor difficulties. My students are visual learners and benefit from multi-sensory and hands-on tools to help them learn and practice Math. With your help, my special thinkers will be provided with a way to learn math fundamentals in a fun and interactive way! Thank you for taking the time to look at my project and learn about my students.
