A no-prep, interactive way to practice prepositions, build vocabulary, and follow directions with play dough!

Number of pages: 30


Are you looking for a hands-on and engaging way to practice spatial concepts, build vocabulary, and follow directions in speech therapy? This no-prep, interactive activity includes scenes with pre-made directions specifically designed to enhance preposition concepts in speech therapy sessions.

Perfect for introducing spatial concepts in speech therapy or for speech therapy homework!

Understanding spatial relationships is crucial for language development, and this resource makes it both fun and educational. These prepositions worksheets are not just another set of exercises; they help students master prepositions and spatial understanding in a speech therapy setting in a functional way.

They’re designed to be open-ended, allowing you to tailor the difficulty level and focus according to each student’s needs. This flexibility ensures that you can revisit the scenes, posing different questions each time to reinforce learning spatial concepts and prevent memorization.

Use these functional play dough mats to work not only on prepositions, but also vocabulary, categories, articulation, following directions, and other language concepts.

Use play dough, bingo chips, mini objects, dot markers, or other manipulatives. Make this activity NO PRINT by drawing on the scenes while on your device.

  1. Connie

    These mats are so bright and colorful, they catch the attention of all kids, even the little ones. I also love the guide to help me customize it to the level of my client

  2. Kendra

    I was looking for a new and easy way to target prepositions and this resource was it! I love the pre-made direction pages and the images/scenes offer opportunities for a lot of language as well (e.g., what, where questions, describing picture, compare/contrast).

  3. Brett

    This is a great ready-to-go resource! Such minimal prep and it is very engaging for students. I like the provided suggestions for directions, and will often us them as a loose guide. The kids love using play-doh and I have also had success with magnetic chips. Overall great resource!

  4. Becky Goodwin

    I have used these mats with so many students! It is great for prepositions, basic concepts, wh questions, vocabulary, and I also use it to practice the word “squish” for skw blends. I love it!

  5. Hannah Geiger

    I have been looking for some more sensory integrated ways to teach spatial concepts and this resource is such a winner for this! I even will have the kids cut out certain shapes in the play dough and then stick it on. Very engaging and fun!! Such a simple resource and so engaging!

  6. Stephanie M

    This resource has so many practical uses for my kiddos! I use it for vocabulary development, following directions prepositions/spatial concepts, WH questions and so much more! Definitely a versatile product, that I recommend to other SLPs!

  7. Jessica Buchholz

    These mats are so fun, and my students love them! So functional and engaging!

  8. Kim Butler

    Preposition play dough mats are a colorful and fun way to learn. The play dough keeps my preschoolers and k-2 ASD little fingers busy while learning positional vocabulary. I also use these mats on cookie sheets and add magnets to give a little variety.
