A no-prep, interactive way to practice prepositions, build vocabulary, and follow directions with play dough in speech therapy!
Make this activity NO PRINT by drawing on the scenes while on your device.
5 Scenes (color and black & white)
– Dining Room
– Laundry Room
5 spatial directions pages – 16 prepositions // 440 directions
– Next to/In Front
Print and then either laminate or place in sheet protectors for multiple use.
Give your student play dough and read the command from the directions page for the appropriate scene.
Simplify the directions by creating one play dough shape (ball, car) and using it for all spatial directions.
Alternatives to play dough:
• Student draws the item in the correct location on the black & white pages.
• Use a manipulative (bingo chip, token).

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
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).
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!
