Interlocking Blocks

Unifix Cube Patterns
Unifix Cube Spelling
Fine motor, math, and letter skills all rolled into one nice little bundle. The best part is the kids thought they were playing...he he he I love making them think this is all just for fun! I just purchased a set of 500 interlocking blocks from Amazon I began the day by showing the kiddos letters I had made out of the blocks. When they identified the letter they got to keep the blocks. I did this until every student had a letter. Then we dumped out all the blocks and I had the students begin making letters. We began with simple letters like the L, I, T, F, E, H, etc. Then some of the kiddos wanted to try making more tricky letters such as S. After making letters we made patterns and numbers. Finally we ended with simply making fun designs with the blocks. I made the flowers and trees. My kiddos made things like boxes, swords, light sabers, and more. When it was time to clean up for play time I had several kiddos that wanted to continue making various things with the blocks. These blocks are great for developing their fine motor skills in a fun way. Next I want to create patterns of things like the flowers, houses, trees, swords, and more that the kids can follow. Then I could place the blocks in my TEACCH system and the students would be able to pick a pattern and create the picture.
