Preschool Language Manipulative Toys

Help me give my students manipulates for table time and playtime to work on language skills, fine motor skills, alphabet skills, cause and effect, and following directions.

My Students

I work with students in an early childhood setting who receive speech language therapy. I have students who are in general education classrooms and special education classrooms. I work with students with a wide range of disabilities including speech language disorders, autism, and developmental delays.

The majority of my students are in self-contained classroom and are working on functional communication, vocabulary development, basic concepts, answering questions, and taking turns.

Each student has individual goals that are being targeted in the classroom to help them be functional communicators and to be more prepared for Kindergarten.

My Project

Students in my classrooms have Autism or other developmental delays and benefit from therapies such as speech language therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. They need materials that are age appropriate and interactive for table time, task boxes, work time with teachers, and play time in the classroom.

Hands-on activities during play are the best way for preschool children to learn new skills in the classroom.

Students can practice matching letters, using fine motor skills to build and put in, early math skills with counting, and practice following directions to interact with these toys during small group or one-on-one teaching times. In addition, storage containers will help keep materials organized.
