Teaching new concepts can be challenging but it doesn’t have to be a struggle. It’s true, everyone learns best when they’re having fun. We carry a wide range of toys and games designed to help kids learn and grow in the classroom, whether they’re spending alone time or they’re part of a group project.
Some of our special needs classroom games are ideal for open-ended classroom play and others suit a very specific purpose. But each item can be used to foster one or more of these important skills: cooperation, problem-solving, creativity, empathy, logic, hand-eye coordination, memory, counting, spelling and shape recognition. There's so much potential for learning tucked into each of these games, so the more they play, the more they'll ultimately learn.
Why are educational games important in the classroom?
Just as at home, toys help children to experiment, take turns and problem-solve. For example, children playing dress-up or engaging in pretend play are building important social and emotional skills including empathy, cooperation and organization. Pretend play also helps children to cultivate their language skills, and items such as this fun veggie tote or bake set are perfect for the occasion.
Items like these also help children to practice shapes, colors, counting and more. Whether it's a pretend game of shopping or a puzzle they'll want to sit down with, learning about and interacting with patterns helps to build strong foundations for classroom skills like reading and math as well as physical, emotional and cognitive skills!
The benefit of puzzles and other types of sorting, stacking or matching games are virtually endless. Blocks, mazes and sequencing items help with fine motor skills, with memory and shape recognition and even show kids how to practice patience and follow through on their goals.
