TEACCH Math & Motor

TEACCH Math Lacing
I wanted to find a way to make a math TEACCH activity that was not paper pencil based or manipulative based. I created quite a few math pages like the one pictured here. I used touchmath on the numbers on the left hand side. This was printed on card stock and laminated. Then using scrapbooking tools I punched holes and placed metal brads in the holes so that the students could lace using yarn or plastic lacing (which I always called Boondoggle).

Ways to make this more challenging or simple: 1. Mixed pages with addition and subtraction will make the task more difficult.
2. Only place touch dots on the second number in the math problem, then remove them all together.
3. Object counting with pictures and then match to the corresponding number.  
4. This type of activity can be used for all sorts of things like multiplication, division, counting, etc. 
5. I used this basic technique to also create phonics pages with the letters of the alphabet on the left hand side and pictures (with the same beginning sounds) on the right hand side. 

Once you start thinking about ways to use this lacing strategy there are numerous activities to be made.
